Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 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. 2018 was a great South Australian vintage and ensured desired flavour development and acid retention resulting in impressive fruit quality.
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.
"It’s all about the bass. High violet notes are followed by rich, redolent black plums and tight blackberry, coming at you with a low, persistent rumble. If at first this wine appears understated and reserved, taste again and it starts to reveal much more – black olive, rhubarb, iodine, coal and slate. Still a tight-fisted velvet glove in its youth, although there’s great warmth and comfort in all these intricately meshed elements. Enjoy trying to figure out the whole delightful puzzle throughout its incredible palate length." Decanter magazine
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 features plenty of vanilla on the nose, backed by concentrated cassis fruit. It's full-bodied, velvety and richly tannic, clearly meant to have two decades (or more) of longevity. Marked by ripe fruit, a notable lack of herbaceousness, and lavish oak, it's out of step with current trends in Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, but it's no less delicious and all the more unique for that." robertparker.com
