Crafted using only the finest Cabernet Sauvignon from across Coonawarra, Barossa Valley and Wrattonbully, the Penfolds’ estate is known to house some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the world. Made in a similar style to Grange, (but without the Shiraz), the Bin 707 is a reflection of Penfolds’ penchant for creating rich, full-bodied and stylish red wines.
Inspired by Penfolds’ first chief winemaker – Max Schubert’s – desire to make ageworthy reds, the Bin 707 is one of the famous South Australian estate’s poster-boy wines. For long, Cabernet Sauvignon was mostly used for blending, but following its inaugural vintage in 1964, this outstanding wine reveals the power and elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Following fermentation and maceration, the wine is aged in a combination of new American oak barrels, a signature of the Penfolds style, and seasoned French oak. This aging process, which typically extends for approximately 18 months, imparts structure and complexity while allowing the wine to evolve and mature gracefully.
In your glass, Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon unveils its deep garnet hue, compete with aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, cedar, and a subtle hint of tobacco leaf. On the palate, it is rich and powerful, with a velvety texture and firm, well-integrated tannins. Flavours of ripe dark fruits, dark chocolate, and a touch of eucalyptus are woven seamlessly, leading to a long, lingering finish.
