Expert Reviews

"Deep purple-red; a wonderfully fragrant, powerful and intense aroma proclaiming Cabernet Sauvignon at the height of its youthful power leads on to a formidable palate, crammed with fruit and oak, but with tannins to lose (as the Californians are fond of saying). Needs years to begin to give of its best but will sweep all before it before it is finished in its show career. Top gold medal winner at the 1997 Sydney Wine Show."

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A tremendous depth of dark crimson.

Aroma

The complex and stylish bouquet shows intense, sweet, dark fruits - stewed plum and cassis with integrated barrel ferment oak characters. Earthy rich nuances and tobacco complexities add further depth to the aromas.

Palate

Highly defined and powerful, the full bodied palate has concentrated blackcurrant flavours complexed by integrated, sweet, strong oak and tannins that grip. The wine shows impeccable balance, sweetness of fruit and a long lingering finish, the hallmarks of a great wine.

Wine Background

Penfolds Bin 707 continues to reinforce its reputation as the international benchmark for Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaking philosophy of Bin 707 is similar to that of Grange. The foundations are carefully selected ripe grapes, barrel fermentation and new American oak maturation.
