Estate Notes

Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 1992 is in very good condition for the year.

Penfold's Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful Australian Bordeaux-inspired red from the Barossa Valley, named after the 707 Jumbo Jet by an ex-Qantas marketing man.

Penfolds wine estate was founded by an English doctor (Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold), who migrated to South Australia in the mid-19th Century. Penfold had a firm belief in the medicinal value of port and sherry and began making fortified wine for his parents.

Penfold's ethos continued until the 1950s when Jeffrey Penfold tasked winemaker Max Schubert to cater for changing consumer tastes.

Almost single-handedly Schubert (who died in 1994) lifted Australia's wine industry out of mediocrity, and today Peter Gago is the esteemed winemaker in charge in the Barossa Valley.

Reviews

“Dense red-purple; an exceptionally rich, concentrated and complex bouquet with blackcurrant, a touch of mint and well-balanced and integrated oak. The palate is long and sumptuous, with densely rich chocolate, blackberry and blackcurrant flavours, finishing with lingering tannins, surrounded throughout by layers of American oak.” James Halliday

“Ripe and generous, elegantly balanced and velvety. The focused currant and plum flavors are shaded by a touch of smoke and spice, the fruit persisting beautifully on the finish.” Wine Spectator
