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

“This 2010 will give any Bin 707 vintage back to 1964 a run for its money’—an unofficial quip, mid-tasting, naturally to be denied publically!”

“Bin 707 unofficially re-defined in 2010: Gloss and sheen (‘sparkle’), yet with depth and structure (‘substance’)… what more could be asked for?!”

Penfolds vintage conditions - grape harvest


After experiencing some of the best winter rainfall in years, the Barossa Valley was poised for a great growing season. With replenishing winter rains in Coonawarra and Wrattonbully, South Australia was primed for an outstanding vintage. Canopy growth was sound and balanced, providing the structural foundations for the ensuing ripening period. Mild and dry ripening conditions across most South Australian regions coincided with cool nights and resulted in consistent conditions. Sporadic Barossa Valley rain assisted ripening and provided balance. Perhaps most importantly, winter, spring and vintage conditions allowed for full flavour development and a chance for Cabernet Sauvignon to realise optimum tannin maturity. In short, a Cabernet vintage for the reference books—a benchmark.
