Pure cabernet. A powerful display of flavour. Perfume, power, persistence - Campbell Mattinson

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.

"A testament to the formidable skills and experience of the Penfolds winemaking team. The bouquet is utterly convincing, as is the genetic expression of cabernet sauvignon on the long, powerful, medium-bodied palate - which brings with it a silver platter of cabernet tannins."  James Halliday

The 2015 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from vineyards in Wrattonbully, Coonawarra, Padthaway, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley. The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak hogsheads (25% new) and American oak hogsheads (10% new, 18% 1-y.o., 36% 2-y.o, 11% 3-y.o.).

"Medium-deep crimson. Intense blackcurrant, roasted beetroot and leafy aromas with graphite aniseed notes. Very attractive youthful wine with exuberant violet, cassis, elderberry and mulberry fruits with chinotto notes, fine plentiful al dente leafy tannins and long fresh acidity. Quite muscular but lovely rich dense vibrant fruit and well-matched savoury oak. Drink now to 2035.

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 affected 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."  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.
