Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon Gift Box 750ml


Bin 707 perfectly reflects the Penfolds ‘House Style’ through a cabernet sauvignon lens: intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multivineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. 

Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest cabernets.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Dense red, with a dark core

Nose: The unravelling begins - immediately laden with black olive and rolled cigar-leaf cabernet appeasements. Then allowing the florals to soar - violet, drying and hanging lavender and baby’s breath (Gypsophila to be precise!). Accompanied by bursts of white sea spray (41% McLaren Vale?) and formic (hint of barrel ferment?), iodine/haemoglobin. Beneath the elution throughout - roasted meats/rendered fat in tandem with cinnamon bar/Dijon mustard seed.

Palate: Certainly the sum of its parts… McLaren Vale ➝ front palate plushness, and again, sea spray. Coonawarra ➝ terra rossa red-dustiness, earth. Barossa Valley ➝ a solid core, and a drive that stridently lunges to the back-palate, enhanced by a regional donation of chocolate/cigar. The berried/plum compôte (with nutmeg and custard) flavours of this Bin 707 are difficult to regionally affix. Yet no more so than its oak (100% new!) is difficult to acknowledge. A mid-palate richness clasps onto graphite and layers of discrete regional cabernet tannins … that time will no doubt morph. In every sense, ‘well-connected’.

Alcohol: 14.5%
