ビン407カベルネ・ソーヴィニヨン2016

ビン407は、1990年のヴィンテージを1993年に発表。より多くの高品質のカベルネ・ソーヴィニヨン品種のブドウが入手可能になったことを受け、開発されたものです。ビン707からのインスピレーションを受けたビン407はこの品種の特徴があり、飲みやすく、しかもしっかりとしたストラクチャーとフレーバーの深みがあります。教科書的なカベルネ・ソーヴィニヨンで、品種の特徴が明らかなビン407は、ペンフォールズのマルチリージョン、マルチヴィンヤードの技術を利用しながら、フレンチオークとアメリカンオークを繊細に使用し、ブドウの熟成を行っています。

飲み頃
Taste Description

Colour
Deep and prominent – solid red.

Nose
Where to start? So immediately true to variety. Punchy, not shy.
Beneath: Subtle forest floor earthiness, laced with liquorice, fennel and anise with a sceric of non-aggressive fresh spearmint.
Above: Sugar pastille wafts – somewhat reminiscent of the fruit bon bons of youth… more prescriptively/realistically – blackcurrant jelly bean.
In between: Summer pudding fruit generosity – suggestive of a cherry clafoutis? Or maybe a fleshy red cherry trifle, avec sponge cake? Yes please.
Absorbed: Stylish/coiffured oak … want to say classy, but might sound pretentious? Next time.

Palate
Bountiful red cabernet fruits complexed by cut tobacco (pouch) and darkened spices.
Seamless, with a tightness/tension between acidity and tannins.
These tannins are ripe and friendly – currently perceived as fruit, not oak tannins.
Oak – quite possibly partially contributing to the sweetness apparent on palate?
Flavour and length. Lingers.

Winemaker Quotes

“Competitive for regional attention - assertive McLaren Vale cabernet tussles with confident Coonawarra cabernet. In this blend, we win!”

“Well-heeled ripe (fruit) tannins – sitting back confidently. Compliant cabernet sauvignon tannins? Surely not?!” 

- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

Vintage Conditions

Autumn and winter rainfall across South Australia’s main growing districts were below average, conditions that prevailed through spring. Temperatures in spring and early summer were above the long-term average, allowing vines to get away to a quick start. Some late rain in January and early February was a welcome relief, refreshing stressed vines and improving yields.

Cooler conditions followed from mid-February which suited the later ripening cabernet sauvignon. Warmer districts had a break with some early March rain delaying the harvest and allowing great flavour development. The cooler districts in the south-east were picked two weeks earlier than usual. Grapes across all the main growing regions were able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours, outstanding colours and fine tannins.
