Vintage Conidtions

The growing regions across South Australia experienced a cool and wet winter and spring. Several longstanding rainfall records were broken across South Australia, with little need for supplementary irrigation until well into summer. Spring was typically windy in the warmer climate districts, especially in October, which created some challenges with fruit set. Despite cooler spring temperatures, the breezy weather helped ward off any danger from frost in Wrattonbully and Coonawarra. The prevailing cool conditions slowed the growing season with flowering and veraison both delayed, in select regions it was two weeks longer than average.

There were no summer heatwaves, with only a handful of days recorded above 40 degrees. Warmer weather in March was welcomed, allowing grapes to finish ripening with great colour and varietal flavour. Vintage in the cooler southern districts was not completed until early May.

History

Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, and inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Garnet red

Nose

An aromatic umbrella sheltering all things cabernet. An immediate ascent of violet, mulberry leaf – laced with star anise, cinnamon, orange zest. Followed by varietal wafts of tomato ketchup, soy, iodine, and oddly, a Chinese spice/stock marinade. Not yet exiting this theme - sweet plum sauce, hoisin and roast duck crackling trepidatiously follows.

Palate

Immediately more Tuscan than Bordeaux in cabernet character. Nevertheless, still very (South) Australian.

Savoury, with a sour cherry grip ... and subtle cherry pip oak influence. Mouth-watering and succulent, yet still linear – tempered by appetising angular tannins. Darker fruits and green Spanish (stuffed) olive flavours further define the vintage, style. Neither a 2010 nor 2016 ... and not trying to be!

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.
