Estate Notes

Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 is a reflection of Grange: intensely-flavoured fruit, matured in new oak and a perfect expression of Penfolds' understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.

Penfolds Bin 707 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 707 has the structure and the intensity in youth and then develops and evolves like the finest wines of its French counterparts.


"Bin 707 is always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and always 100% new oak, though it is not released every year. The 2007 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was matured 15 months in new American oak hogsheads. Very deep purple-black in color, it gives intense notes of vanilla, creme de cassis, blackberry preserves, licorice and espresso plus a bit of dark chocolate. Very crisp with a very high level of chewy tannins, the fruit is just a little ungenerous on the medium to full-bodied palate, giving a long tannin-dominated finish."

"Deep purple-crimson; a brooding, powerful wine, black fruits, tannins, tar and earth dominant, the normally sweetening impact of the American oak to no avail. I'm not practising as I preach in giving the wine 94 points for tomorrow not today." James Halliday
