Penfolds Rewards of Patience tasting panel 2021 - 5/5 rating 

Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet still with structure and depth of flavour. Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak.

"Beautifully balanced and characterful. Dense and chocolaty with beautiful cassis and inky flavours. Finishes chocolaty firm, long and sweet with persistent cassis, plum notes. A really strong vintage with a lovely balance between cool and warm expressions of cabernet. Possibly the best Bin 407 ever with intense varietal expression, supple/sinuous textures, superb vinosity/ length and South Australian voice. Can see this lasting for another 20 years plus."  Andrew Caillard

The 2014 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from vineyards in Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and Clare Valley. The wine was matured for 13 months in French oak (24% new) and American oak hogshead (10% new, 27% 1-y.o., 39% 2-y.o.).

"Medium-deep crimson. Fragrant and intense blackcurrant and herb garden aromas with praline and vanilla notes. Very cabernet like with leafy cassis plum fruits, fine grainy slightly grippy muscular tannins, superb mid-palate richness and underlying savoury vanilla oak. Finishes firm and long with inky minerally notes. Drink now to 2032.

Vintage Conditions: Above-average winter and early spring rainfall offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil moisture profi les for the growing season. Late spring and summer were dry and warm setting signifi cant heat records. Warm weather prevailed during summer and throughout veraison, allowing grapes to develop evenly and with good fl avour intensity. These warm conditions came to an abrupt halt in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale in mid-February with signifi cant rainfall allowing for long, slow and optimal ripening of the fruit. Wrattonbully had a warm and generally dry ripening end to the season allowing the development of strong varietal fl avours."  Penfolds 

Wine region map of South Australia

South Australia

South Australian is responsible for more than half the production of all Australian wine. It is home to more than 900 wineries across 18 wine regions. The regions are Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Currency Creek, Eden Valley, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Mount Benson, Mount Gambier, Padthaway, Riverland, Robe, Southern Fleurieu, Southern Flinders Ranges and Wrattonbully.

Many of the well-known names in the South Australian wine industry established their first vineyards in the late 1830s and early 1840s. The first vines in McLaren Vale were planted at Reynella in 1839 and Penfold's established Magill Estate on the outskirts of Adelaide in 1844.

South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the State to be able to produce a range of grape varieties - from cool climate Riesling in the Clare and Eden Vallies to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. Two of Australia's best-known wines, Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace, are produced here. There is much to discover in South Australia for the wine lover.
