Bin 707 is Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Grange equivalent: ripe, intensely-flavoured fruit; completing fermentation and matured in new American oak; and expressing the Penfolds' policy of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit-sourcing. Named by an exQantas marketing man, Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when the focus shifted to Bin 389) nor in 1981, 1995 or 2000 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full bodied and with good cellaring potential, Bin 707 has a secure place among the ranks of Australia's finest Cabernets. Packaged in laser-etched bottles from the 1997 vintage.

Winemaker notes

1980: Dense powerful and tannic wine, with the fruit leaning into tertiary tobacco and leather notes.

2001: Deep crimson. Intense blackberry, blackcurrant pastille and praline aromas with herb garden notes. Generous, supple and fruit sweet with blackcurrant pastille and blackberry fruits, fine plentiful ripe velvety tannins and underlying mocha espresso oak. Lovely generosity of fruit and completely integrated tannins.

2001

Wine Advocate 87: One of the deeper colored wines in Penfolds’ portfolio is the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707. Aromas of forest floor, underbrush, black currants, and old wood emerge from this medium-bodied Cabernet. A clipped finish again suggests a bizarre fascination with low pH and acid levels that has nothing to do with the vineyard, terroir, vintage character, or pleasure. Nevertheless, there is enough black currant fruit to pull this wine into the acceptable category.
