Estate Notes

Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 is a reflection of Grange: intensely-flavoured fruit, matured in new oak for 20 months, and a perfect expression of Penfolds' understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. It was purchased in its original wooden case.

Bin 707 was named after the 707 Jumbo Jet by an ex-Qantas marketing man. It is only made with fruit that matches up to the required standard and quality, sourced from Coonawarra, the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Padthaway and is only produced when the quality is there, most recent examples being 2000, 2003 and 2011.


"this classic Penfolds Cabernet hails from Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills, with a component of the famous old vine Block 42 for pedigree. It’s typically rich and smoky on the nose, with a lovely dense texture and spiciness on the palate, spliced with chocolatey and crème de cassis richness and underpinned by an iron fist of as yet muscular, tight tannins which suggest serious potential for ageing. This wine could only be Australian, but that’s no bad thing. Drink with a retro roast duck à l’orange." Decanter Magazine

"Aged in American oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 stands out for its bold aromas of vanilla, tobacco and cassis. This year, it's close to 40% each from Coonawarra and McLaren Vale, with smaller proportions from Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills. It's full-bodied and rich, with a velvety mouthfeel, great intensity and super length. Yes, it's embryonic, but it's not unapproachable, much like any other high-quality New World Cabernet these days, with the ability to age for two decades or more."
