2014 New Release

Bin 707 is a 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. 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, 2003 or 2011 (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.

"Solid, assertive, formidable. Watch out 2010!”

“Unravels across hours – captivatingly.”

“Grange of Cabernet? Indeed, the 2012 vintage provides more evidence to support this proposition.”

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

Expert Reviews

Rating 98 Sourced from Coonawarra, Padthaway, Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully and the Adelaide Hills; the fermentation is completed in new American oak hogsheads, whereafter it is matured in those hogsheads for 14 months. There is amazing depth to the purple-crimson colour. Its full-bodied colours are nailed to the mast immediately the wine enters the mouth; it's strange how the cabernet of this wine marries with the American oak, providing the ultimate Christmas cake of aromas and flavours; one of its great strengths is the tannin structure that gives the wine its exceptional length (and mouthfeel along the way). Not made in '81, '95, '00, '03 and '11. Rating 98 - Drink by 2040, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2014)

Rating 95 - Wine Spectator Magazine

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep purple, with a black, impenetrable core


At once 707… i.e. it would appear less 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, more 100% Bin 707! Barrel ferment notes sprint past all others – the formics, smoked nuts/meats. Soon overtaken by hoisin, sweet soy sauces and concentrated tomato paste aromatics. A final wave of liquorice, black forest cake/tiramisu and choc/coffee affogato exotics. And what of the 100% new oak? Yes, perhaps the primary source of those (repressed) nutty/toasty wafts…?


Full-bodied, mouth-filling. Complex, layered. Surely not befitting the “assault of the senses” commentary overheard on a re-pour during this tasting?! A blackcurrant overlay across a base of just-baked, spiced, chocolate fondant. Tannins omnipresent, yet calmly conveyed by the wine’s lush fruits and densely textured extract. Oak totally absorbed…certainly at one with the wine.

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.
