Ian, thanks for taking the lead on this project! I'm having a little trouble finding Bin 28 here, too, which is odd because there are a dozen or more Penfolds labels widely available, not excluding Grange itself (if you can pay the fare). I'm not sure why the one Bin we need is thin on the ground around here, but I'm still looking.

I know the latter is normally preferable, but wondered whether you felt it ok to bend good practice in this case as there's no perceived issue. Happy to follow your sound advice on this matter].

Like Baby Bear's porridge, it's just right!
Now wish me well in my continued quest! So far I've found every ding-danged Bin Number that Penfolds makes EXCEPT No. 28!

AND when you do finally bottle the next batch, obviously that will taste somewhat differently - due at least to the extra time in wood. just a thought.
