One of the best 407s yet. Complete and refined. Layers of flavour. Super wine - Ray Jordan

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.

"The complete Cabernet chorus sings its way out of the glass – fruit, leaf and flower, all in perfect harmony. Rich from the outset, it draws together a full body with grace and elegance, while fine tannins sustain the velvet plushness that rolls through. You're left with complex aftertaste that provides exactly what the nose suggests. The circle is complete. An inspiring wine.”  David Sly

The 2018 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from vineyards in Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Robe. The wine was matured for 12 months In French (21% new) and American (9% new) oak hogsheads.

"Deep crimson. A classic South Australian cabernet with intense and fragrant pure blackcurrant and dark plum aromas, fresh sage and bay leaf notes and underlying mocha oak. Elegantly structured with persistent blackcurrant pastille, plum and dark chocolate flavours, fine-grained velvety tannins and mocha and roasted walnut oak. Finishes leafy/chalky firm with plentiful dark fruits. Generous and exuberant with all the elements neatly balanced. Drink now to 2038.

Vintage Conditions: A relatively dry winter and spring, coupled with slightly above average temperatures, indicated an early start to the growing season. Overall warm conditions prevailed with optimal conditions for flowering and fruit-set. Barossa Valley experienced 22 days of temperature greater than 35°C, while McLaren Vale experienced 17 days of temperature greater than 35°C, with  a maximum of 42.1°C on January 18th. Coonawarra experienced 13 days over 35°C coupled with below average rainfall. Late flowering and the onset of veraison delayed harvest by a few weeks, a pattern that also played out in Wrattonbully, Padthaway and Robe. The warm autumn conditions leading into harvest ensured cabernet sauvignon achieved ample ripeness with well-rounded tannins and tremendous varietal flavour. All up, an exceptional vintage for cabernet sauvignon."  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.
