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.
||A multi-regional blend, all South Australia: Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway, Robe and Wrattonbully.
||18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads (300 litres).
||Stainless steel tanks with wax-lined/wooden header boards. All wines destined for Bin 707 complete fermentation in new oak barrels.
