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.

"Incredible density and concentration. The complexity of the wine almost defies description. Just about any positive red wine adjective applies. It's not about cabernet varietal character, just great red wine character. Tremendous length and balance: it's a wine which will live for decades and keep revealing more and more."  Huon Hooke

"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 2015 Penfolds Bin 707 is 100% cabernet sauvignon sourced from premium vineyards in Coonawarra, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Padthaway. The wine was matured for 20 months in new American oak hogsheads.

"Deep crimson. Intense black cherry, blackcurrant, ink and anise aromas with praline notes. Fresh supple black cherry, cassis, mulberry and bramble flavours, fine grainy cedar tannins and savoury oak complexity. Medium-bodied for a Bin 707 but has a natural grace and flow. Will probably develop more quickly than 2014. Peak drinking 2025 to 2060.

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 effected 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.
