The Penfolds Collection

2018 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon with Gift Box

Bin 707 is a perfect cabernet sauvignon representation of Penfolds ‘House Style’: 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, 2011 or 2017 (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.

Taste Description

Taste Description

2018 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon with Gift Box

Colour

Deep mulberry red

Nose

First impression: An automatic ascent of cabernet sauvignon varietal fruits laced with classic Bin 707 barrel-ferment and formic markers.

Fruit and derivatives: Scents of boysenberry ice-cream, black forest cake, dark black cherry/kirsch... and zabaglione, pana cotta notes hovering above.

Oak: Contribution noted via the release of sandalwood, frankincense and whetstone sharpening block graphite aromatics.

Lasting impression: Vivid. Elemental. Beckoning.

Palate

A solid cabernet core immediately apparent, with fruits to the fore (juicy blackcurrant) and a wrinkled, black olive concentration. Texturally, the fine weave of a tapestry – a thread of rhubarb/cranberry natural acidity, wrapped around a mesh of slinky tannins. (A perception of skin and seed tannins only, despite 100% new oak. No doubt the wine’s gloss and sleekness render this misconception). Complexingly, a dark chocolate graininess, cedar and a savoury disposition contribute to the layering, length and longevity potential of this wine. Complete.

Vintage conditions

2018 Vintage

A relatively dry winter and spring, coupled with slightly above average temperatures, indicated an early start to the growing season. A spell of cold weather during budburst slowed vine phenology by approximately 10-14 days but climatic conditions for flowering and fruit-set were optimal in all regions. Summer was warm, with the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra all experiencing heat spells greater than 35°C in January with below average rainfall. Late flowering and onset of veraison delayed harvest by a few weeks, a pattern also reflected in Wrattonbully and Robe. The Adelaide Hills had a very dry finish to summer and an unseasonably warm autumn, ensuring cabernet sauvignon achieved ample ripeness with good levels of flavour and intensity. Overall, an exceptional vintage for cabernet sauvignon with strong varietal expression across each sourcing region.

The Bin 707 Story

Inspired by the iconic jet that took it to the world. The rich and powerful Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon, our first commercial release of a single cabernet-based wine, is linked to Max Schubert’s dream of making a great Australian red wine that could last at least 20 years. During the ‘50s and early ‘60s cabernet sauvignon was mostly used for blending, but Schubert’s breakthrough with the varietal as a stand-alone wine came in 1964 with inaugural vintage. Early Bin 707s were typically open fermented under wax-lined header boards and matured in seasoned old oak (rather than new oak). The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when fruit was directed to other wines) nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003, 2011 or 2017 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available).
