Overview

Bin 707 is Penfolds' Cabernet Sauvignon version of Grange: ripe, intensely-flavoured fruit; completing fermentation and maturation in new American oak; fully expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.

Named by an ex-Qantas marketer, 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). Fullbodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 has a secure place among the ranks of Australia's finest Cabernets.

Expert Reviews

91 Points. Campbell Mattinson - Wine Front. 22nd Sept 2009

This 1989 version of Bin 707 was tasted as part of the Penfolds Rewards of Patience tastings in 2007. I don’t have information of where each vintage is sourced from but I will fill that in later.

Developing nicely. Has a fresh juiciness that the older wines lacked. Clean, juicy, complete. There are indeed some tomato-leaf characters, but the integrated, interwoven nature of the wine presents them positively. Lots of tannin, mind. And a fair degree of fruit sweetness still, as though the grapes used to make it were a mix of slightly unripe and slightly over-ripe. Treacle-like in some ways. I enjoyed it.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The 1964 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was Penfolds’ first commercial release of a single cabernet-based wine. Today, Bin 707 is justifiably regarded as one of Australia’s most important cabernets.

The winemaking philosophy and barrel maturation of Bin 707 is almost identical to Grange. The Bin 707 style combines intense varietal definition with new American oak to produce wines of great richness, harmony and concentration.

Over the years the development of Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon has mirrored the advances in winemaking and viticulture and in this sense has served as a representation of progress and excellence within the industry.Bin 707 proudly bears the Penfolds stamp – displaying a fascinatingly complex marriage of ripe, concentrated cabernet fruit and 100% new American oak, forged together through partial barrel fermentation. It displays dark berried fruit, mocha and chocolate overtones, with warm spice notes.

Bin 707 is a medium to long term cellaring style of wine. It will comfortably gain stature and complexity across more than two decades in the bottle.
