Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

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.



James Suckling

Sourced from Coonawarra, Padthaway, Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully and the Adelaide Hills, this is a wine with real purpose, confidence and bold style in a very good vintage. The nose has some creamy spice and nougat oak; theres a strong savory thread with dark herbs and dark stones too, along with almost brick mortar and very dark soy, iodine, tarry notes, and black olive. It opens up with gusto, really expressive. The palate has a seam of mocha flavor and the oak is fresh, adding a crispness to the wine from the outset. The density here is striking and very compact; it strides across the palate with purpose, length and poise. The tannins are seamlessly woven together, offering admirable ageing potential. Drink in 2024.

Made from Coonawarra, Padthaway, Barossa, Wrattonbully and Adelaide Hills fruit and aged 14 months is 100% new American oak hogsheads, the deep, vibrant purple colored 2012 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon opens to lovely crème de cassis notes with some kirsch accents plus violets, cedar and menthol nuances. At the moment the oak stands out on the palate so it needs more time to integrate, but otherwise it is quite minty, has balanced acid though is very punchy and it is bursting with fruit through the very long, firm finish.
