Vintage History:

Bin 707 is a Cabernet Sauvignon reflection of Grange—intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 when fruit was directed to other wines, nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003 or 2011 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest Cabernets.

Behind Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

Peter Gago
Penfolds Chief Winemaker

“Solid, assertive, formidable. Watch out 2010!”

“Unravels across hours – captivatingly.”

“Grange of Cabernet? Indeed, the 2012 vintage provides more evidence to support this proposition.”

Penfolds vintage conditions - grape harvest


Lower than average winter rainfall was experienced across each region. Variable conditions continued through the period from October to December, merging into a mild summer, with a few short periods of elevated heat. Areas including the Coonawarra experienced cooler temperatures for flowering ahead of superior ripening conditions, with lower yields contributing to an earlier start to harvest. Across each region, fruit was picked in optimal condition. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions. Coupled with favourable weather conditions, great results were delivered for traditional quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.
