Bin 707 赤霞珠 2014

Bin 707 是赤霞珠中的葛兰许:选用香味浓郁的浆果;在新橡木桶中完全发酵熟化;表达了 Penfolds 对跨庄园、跨产区选材的深刻理解。Bin 707 系列于 1964 年首次推出。该系列葡萄酒在 1970 年到 1975 年期间因果实用于其它葡萄酒的制造而停产,1981 年、1995 年、2000 年、2003 年和 2011 年也因当时的葡萄在风格和质量上达不到要求而停产。Bin 707 系列葡萄酒醇香浓郁,有优秀的窖藏潜力,稳居澳洲最佳赤霞珠榜单之首。

Taste Description

Deep, brooding red.

Exotic. Aromatically more perfumed than normal – old-garden fresh dark red rose, lavender, and ylang-ylang.
It transitions upon sitting, to conform to a more recognisable Bin 707 varietal demeanour. But not quickly … work required in glass to awaken!
100% new oak; 0% recognition. 20 months? Absorbed, ingested.

Uniform across palate. Balanced, expressive.
Many flavours register – the ‘pure’ (blueberry fruits), and the ‘derived’ (rum ‘n’ raisin chocolate / freshly-baked panettone / trifle without custard).
Tannins – focussed, fine-grained, not angular or blocky. Oak – collaborative and courteous!
Approachable, imminently drinkable – now or in a decade or two.

Winemaker Quotes

“After over half a century Bin 707 remains a non-conforming South Australian expression of cabernet sauvignon. Why change now?!”

“Yes, just that touch ‘different’ in vintage 2015; more finessed. Still 100% cabernet sauvignon. Still 100% new oak. Different vintage; different weather, different (707) wine.”

“Demands air. No other requests.”

- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker


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

Maturation: 20 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads.

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vintage Conditions

Autumn and early winter rainfall were above the long-term average. Rain stopped abruptly in early August with only light showers observed throughout spring. The dry and cool spring period effected canopy growth early in the season. Warm and dry conditions during flowering and fruit-set resulted in rapid grapevine growth and early flowering.

A high rainfall event occurred in Coonawarra in January, mostly falling outside of veraison. February brought weekend heat spikes, pushing mean maximum temperatures well above the average resulting in early ripening and harvest.


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).
