Bin 407 赤霞珠 2014

随着优质赤霞珠的日益普及,Penfolds 在 1993 年发布了首创年份 1990 年的 Bin 407 。Bin 407 的灵感来自Bin 707,它不仅展现了赤霞珠的独特风味,而且结构清晰,极具层次感。Bin 407 是 Penfolds 酒庄跨产区、跨葡萄园选材的混酿成果,适当运用法国和美国橡木桶来熟化葡萄酒,成功地保留了以成熟果实为核心的结构。


Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking now - 2030.

Taste Description

Bright garnet.

Savoury spices (paprika, curry leaf) with beetroot, blackcurrant conserve and cassis varietal markers regally ascend.
Less noble yet endearing wafts of Mediterranean meat(s)-on-a-spit, and a suggestion of oak/char.
No herbaceousness, tomato-leaf or black olive or graphite immediately evident… however, darkened tarry and bitumen aromas abound.

Tight, solid, assertive – handles oak well.
Impressive mid-palate adorned with pronounced Cabernet tannins and a refreshing acidity.
Reassuring flavours including black olive and pomegranate alongside a fanciful impression of carpaccio slivers of seared venison.
A (powdery) sprinkling of cocoa powder, mocha, shaved bitter chocolate and walnut husk adds further interest.


Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia. From McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Coonawarra, Wrattonbully, and Barossa Valley.

Maturation: 12 months in French oak (26% new) and American oak hogshead (12% new, 35% 1-y.o., 27% seasoned).

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vintage Conditions

After a dry South Australian winter reminiscent of 2006, vines were in water deficit at the beginning of spring and became accustomed to dry conditions quite early. Early budburst was noticeable across many regions and windy conditions during flowering were, in some regions, responsible for variable fruit set and lower than average yields come vintage. Dry spring conditions explained canopy growth and low yields, becoming typical of the 2013 growing season.

Warm days were dispersed throughout October, November and in early January, contributing to an early start to the 2013 harvest and a short, condensed vintage. Dry and warm conditions, coupled with lower than average yields resulted in Cabernet with strong, structural tannins and wines of great intensity and encouraging flavour. 


Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, and inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.
