Overview

Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Varietal flavours of mulberry and blackcurrant flavours overlay minty chocolate meshed with cedary oak. Savoury, angular cabernet tannins combined with structural tightness induce a perception of inkiness that should mellow with maturity.

Expert Reviews

94 points, James Halliday - Wine Companion, Date Tasted Nov 01

Medium to full red-purple; ripe blackberry/earthy varietal character on the bouquet, then a palate with great depth and power, supported by controlled, savoury tannins and lingering blackberry fruit. The oak handling throughout cannot be faulted.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep crimson, with a purple edge.

Aroma

Dusty cranberry and blackcurrant varietal aromas heightened by a dash of spicy oak. Background aromas of lightly steamed broccoli, blackcurrant and fig.

Palate

Varietal flavours of mulberry and blackcurrant flavours overlay minty chocolate meshed with cedary oak. Savoury, angular cabernet tannins combined with structural tightness induce a perception of inkiness that should mellow with maturity.

Wine Background

Launched in 1993 with the 1990 vintage, Penfolds Bin 407 was developed by Penfolds Chief Winemaker, John Duval, in response to the increasing availability of high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.

Inspired by Penfolds Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and attention to detail, at a more affordable price point. A textbook Cabernet, Bin 407 is true to Penfolds' multi-region, multi-vineyard blending policy, showing a core of ripe fruit supported by French and American oak.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
