Expert Reviews

"Medium to full red-purple; ripe blackberry/earthy varietal character on the bouquet, then a palate with great depth and power, supported by controlled, savoury tannins and lingering blackberry fruit. The oak handling throughout cannot be faulted."

Rating 94 Drink 2015 - James Halliday, Wine Companion - Date Tasted Nov 01

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

An opaque mauve, with a black centre and dark crimson rim.

Aroma

Varietal notes of blackcurrant and a hint of leaf are immediately apparent, with black olives and sweet dark fruits in the background. The wine shows cedary, spicy oak with thumbprint savoury smoky whiffs indicative of the ferment finishing in barrel.

Palate

Structurally tight and taut, in keeping with the variety, the wine is mouth-filling and expansive, with bright, ripe dark berry fruits and tight-grained, elongated tannins. With great finesse and showing excellent persistence of flavour, the wine’s impressive depth and structure give it immense presence in the glass and promises a great cellaring future.

Wine Background

Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon is the Cabernet equivalent of Grange: ripe, intensely-flavoured fruit, fermented 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). Big and long-lived, Bin 707 has a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest Cabernets.

Packaged in laser-etched bottles from the 1997 vintage.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
