A sensational Bin 407. Outstanding concentration and presence. One of the greats - Tyson Stelzer

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.

"Delicious cabernet wine with seductive cassis, dark plum fruit, fine grained yet slightly grippy tannins and beautiful roasted chestnut oak notes. Finishes inky, firm and long. A very expressive wine with impressive density, balance and vigour. Not as powerful nor as concentrated as Bin 707 but classical in dimension. This is benchmark Bin 407 with the promise of longevity."  Andrew Caillard MW

The 2016 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from vineyards in Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully and Padthaway. The wine was matured for 12 months In French (25% new) and American (9% new) oak hogsheads.

"Medium-deep crimson. Ripe blackcurrant and dark plum aromas with roasted chestnut, and vanilla notes. Dense cassis and dark plum with sage notes, fine plush tannins and underlying roasted chestnut and mocha oak complexity. Finishes chalky firm, long and sweet. Lovely extract and richness. Needs more time to integrate. Drink 2023 to 2040.

Vintage Conditions: Autumn and winter rainfall across South Australia's main growing districts were below average, conditions that prevailed through spring. Temperatures in spring and early summer were above the long-term average, allowing vines to get away to a quick start. Some late rain in January and early February was a welcome relief, refreshing stressed vines and improving yields. Cooler conditions followed from mid-February which suited the later ripening cabernet sauvignon. Warmer districts had a break with some early March rain delaying the harvest and allowing great flavour development. The cooler districts in the south-east were picked two weeks earlier than usual. Grapes across all the main growing regions were able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours, outstanding colours and fine tannins."  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.
