Bin 707 is a Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon reflection of Grange—intensely flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. Named by an ex-Qantas employee, Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 when fruit was directed to other wines, nor in 1981, 1995, 2000 or 2003 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest Cabernets.

PETER GAGO, PENFOLDS CHIEF WINEMAKER:
“Potential’ redefined... without doubt, this wine’s best is yet to come! Patience, please.”
“Decanting mandatory—particularly if bottled under screwcap.”

Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep dark core, purple edge retained in February 2012.

Nose

Instantly recognizable—unabashed and unmistakably 707—no pretense, no mistaking. Dark berry coulis, spiced dates, and pecan-shortcrust aromas hover above. Suggestive notes of ironstone, ferrous assortments and soy simmer below. Irrationally, but a silhouette of nutty, chocolate/ malty oak...

Palate

Full-bodied, rich and even. Varietal fruits have a role, but not a major part of this flavoursome production. Texturally, more muscular, defined and assertive, than mouth-coating or viscous. Prominent tannins are firm, ripe and malleable. Creamy/nougat oak in no way shying away— contentedly at one with the blend.
