2019 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Penfolds Collection

2019 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

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

2019 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

Colour

Dense red, with a dark core

Nose

The unravelling begins - immediately laden with black olive and cigar-leaf cabernet appeasements.

Then allowing the florals to soar - violet, lavender and baby’s breath.

Accompanied by bursts of sea spray (41% McLaren Vale?) and formic (hint of barrel ferment?), iodine/haemoglobin.

Beneath the elution throughout - roasted meats in tandem with cinnamon bar/Dijon mustard seed.

Palate

Certainly the sum of its parts…

McLaren Vale: front palate plushness, and sea spray.

Coonawarra: terra rossa red-dustiness, earth.

Barossa Valley: a solid core, and a drive that stridently lunges to the back-palate.

 A mid-palate richness with layers of discrete regional cabernet tannins …In every sense, ‘well-connected’.

Vintage conditions

2019 Vintage

The South-East growing districts of South Australia enjoyed above-average winter rainfall, while McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley recorded well below-average. September temperatures were cool with little rainfall resulting in some isolated frost events. Summer was generally hot, with high temperatures delaying veraison. The Barossa Valley experienced 31 days of temperatures exceeding 35°C, while Coonawarra experienced 20 days of temperature greater than 35°C during the months December to March. Irrigation was crucial to keep vines in good health. The proximity of the Southern Ocean played an important role in moderating temperatures in Coonawarra and Padthaway, allowing for a high-quality harvest, albeit with smaller yields than average. Although yields were smaller, the quality was outstanding with cabernet sauvignon displaying excellent colours, firm tannin profiles and intense flavours.

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).
