Estate Notes

Penfold's Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 was purchased in its original case and bottles have excellent levels & labels.

Penfold's Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful Australian Bordeaux-inspired red from the Barossa Valley, and was 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

"Penfolds' most impressive Cabernet Sauvignon is the 1994 Bin 707. This murky plum-colored, blockbuster, backward, exceptionally tannic Cabernet displays abundant quantities of blackberry and cassis fruit, a heavy overlay of toasty vanillin from new oak casks, and mouthsearing levels of tannin. Although the wine is closed, it is firmly-structured and enormously-endowed in the mouth." eRobertParker.com (1998)

"Bright and fruity, with a firm backbone to support the well-articulated currant and blackberry flavors." Wine Spectator
