Expert Reviews

"Powerful blackberry, earth fruit punctuates both bouquet and palate; intense, no compromise tannins; has chewed up the oak; long finish. High quality cork showing overflow stain. "

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Impenetrable black/purple with a concession of red at the rim.

Aroma

An unashamedly powerful, ‘sweet’ nose of ripe fruits, (blackcurrant, concentrated cassis) and unbaked Christmas cake mix, align with an aromatic coal/smoky barrel ferment lift. Complex and distinctive!

Palate

Dark stone fruits, mocha and dark chocolate flavours stand apart with a black olive, tarry ‘darkness’ lurking behind - 14 months in 100% new oak handled comfortably. Succulent and fleshy without any suggestion of over ripeness, facilitated by huge, ripe, mouth coating tannins that coat evenly without excessive grip. Long and lingering.

Wine Background

Bin 707 is Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Grange equivalent: ripe, intensely-flavoured fruit; completing fermentation and matured in new American oak; and expressing the Penfolds policy of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.

Named by an ex-Qantas marketing man, Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when the focus shifted to Bin 389) nor in 1981, 1995 or 2000 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available).

Full bodied and with good cellaring potential, Bin 707 has a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest cabernets. The 2002 Penfolds Bin 707 is quite possibly in the league of the 1990 and 1996 releases...one to watch!

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.
