Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet with structure and depth of flavour. Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak.
||Multi-district blend, South Australia/Western Australia including Bordertown (SA), Padthaway (SA), Coonawarra (SA), Robe (SA), McLaren Vale (SA), Clare Valley (SA), Barossa Valley (SA), Wrattonbully (SA) and Margaret River (WA).
||12 months in new French and American (approximately 30%) oak. Also 1- and 2-year-old hogsheads – some of which were used for previous vintages of Bin 707.
||Stainless steel fermenters with wooden header boards. Some components complete fermentation in barrel.
