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.
'Normally Bin 707 is a wine of its own style and making. Ripe, warm climate Cabernet Sauvignon shamelessly welded to 100% new American Oak - a fantastically appalling combination almost anywhere else in the world, but here a full-throttled thrill ride of pure pleasure. The dark fruits, smoked bacon and dark, lustrous tannins are all here, but the freshness of 2014 reveals a savoury, rocky base (almost Bordeaux like) underneath the crashing waves of South Australian Cabernet. May well evolve along the lines of the legendary 1990.' Justin Knock MW, Wine Director
