Bin 707 is a Cabernet Sauvignon reflection of Grange: intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. 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 or 2011 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest Cabernets.
An effortlessly luxuriant and pure wine, with juicy blackcurrant and cassis fruit supported by positive, but fine and ripe tannins; only Penfolds can use 100% American oak to such good effect. Great 707. Drink to: 2036; Date Tasted: Mar 2009; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Pure, deep and solid, with swish, sweet tannins and tremendous carry through the finish. It has a raspberried, dark soy–like sweetness, with flavours of sugared, stewed coffee through the aftertaste and a blast of pure blackcurrant. It’s a remarkable Australian cabernet. The finesse, the mouthfeel, the brooding length, the integration: everything. Tasted: May 2009; Alcohol: 14.5%; Drink: 2015-2030; Rated: 97 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
