Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Case Format: 6x75cl

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.

The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 hails from Coonawarra, Barossa Valley and Wrattonbully and is matured for 16 months in American oak hogsheads (100% new). On the nose, the wine is aromatically reticent, but in the mouth, the tannins (then fruit) hit with full force. This is a powerful wine that, to be honest, I find little joy in on release. The firm caveat I would assert at this stage is that old Bin 707—we are talking 20 or 30 years old—is a graceful, powerful, exciting wine. And 2021 was a gorgeous vintage: long, cool and even in the growing season, so the wines produced in this year (from South Australia particularly) are elegant and composed. The fruit here speaks of its vintage origins; however, the oak remains a big part of the story at this early stage. The "plus" part of the score is a very loud indicator of its future potential. 14.5% alcohol, sealed under natural cork.

James Suckling

This is a very fine 707. Often a bit of a yeoman, this is more sophisticated than I recall. Gun barrel tannins with the glint of steely intent. Like a slick of alloyed ball bearings, rolling across the generously weighted palate while delivering iodine, bouquet garni, a swab of tapenade and cassis in all the right places. Rich and powerful, yet detailed and savory all at once. The juiciness of the fruit effortlessly transcends the slathering of oak, predicting a very bright future. A wonderful wine in the making. Best after 2027.
