Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 2007

Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 750ML 2007      
Sku: 20094

The 1964 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was Penfolds’ first commercial release of a single cabernet-based wine. Today, Bin 707 is justifiably regarded as one of Australia’s most important cabernets. The winemaking philosophy and barrel maturation of Bin 707 is almost identical to Grange. The Bin 707 style combines intense varietal definition with new American oak to produce wines of great richness, harmony and concentration. Over the years the development of Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon has mirrored the advances in winemaking and viticulture and in this sense has served as a representation of progress and excellence within the industry. Bin 707 proudly bears the Penfolds stamp – displaying a fascinatingly complex marriage of ripe, concentrated cabernet fruit and 100% new American oak, forged together through partial barrel fermentation. It displays dark berried fruit, mocha and chocolate overtones, with warm spice notes. Bin 707 is a medium to long term cellaring style of wine. It will comfortably gain stature and complexity across more than two decades in the bottle.

Bin 707 is always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and always 100% new oak, though it is not released every year. The 2007 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was matured 15 months in new American oak hogsheads. Very deep purple-black in color, it gives intense notes of vanilla, creme de cassis, blackberry preserves, licorice and espresso plus a bit of dark chocolate. Very crisp with a very high level of chewy tannins, the fruit is just a little ungenerous on the medium to full-bodied palate, giving a long tannin-dominated finish. With another 2 years+ in bottle, the fruit may come forward on this wine and it should drink to 2020+.

Food pairing
