Superb generosity, concentration and richness. Substantial Block 42 material in the blend - Rewards of Patience

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

Bin 707 is Penfolds cabernet sauvignon Grange equivalent. The style relies on the riper spectrum of cabernet sauvignon flavours and tannins, is matured in new American oak and expresses the Penfolds policy of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. Named by an ex-Qantas marketing man, Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when fruit was directed to other wines) nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003, 2011 or 2017 (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.

A long, seamless and very sophisticated cabernet despite its significant dimensions, structure and power. It's steeped in piercing flavours of blackberries, dark plums and cassis, and backed by very smart oak and robust, pliant tannins. It's long and savoury, with a lingering core of explosive dark fruit. A genuine Bin 707."  Jeremy Oliver

"Arguably the best Penfolds red, consistently expressive of exemplary cabernet qualities, Bin 707 is sourced from several South Australian regions, principally the Barossa and Coonawarra. A benchmark cellaring wine, revived in the 1970s after Len Evans told Penfolds their decision to delete it some years earlier bordered on the insane."  Jeremy Oliver

The 2004 Penfolds Bin 707 is 100% cabernet sauvignon sourced from premium vineyards in Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra. The wine was matured for 15 months in new American oak hogsheads.

"Medium-deep crimson. Fresh dark cherry, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and cigar box aromas with herb garden liquorice notes. Expressive and plush with ample blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours, chocolaty ripe tannins, plentiful mocha oak nuances and integrated acidity. Superb generosity, concentration and richness with beautiful ripe chalky plume at the finish. Substantial mid-1880s-planted Block 42 material in the blend. Peak drinking now to 2045+.

Vintage Conditions: Above average winter rainfall led into a promising vintage, which was characterised by mild conditions up until February, followed by hot weather conditions throughout March and April. South Australia fared well and produced wines of elegance and intensity."  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.
