Notes sourced from Southcorp Wines.
Penfolds Bin 707 is the quintessential Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaking philosophy of Bin 707 is similar to that of Grange, that is ripe grapes, barrel fermentation and new American oak maturation. The result is a wine of great richness, power, harmony and concentration with the structure and strength to age for the long term.Bin 707 and other wines in the Bin-range "family" of red wines - 128, 389 and 28 - were among the result of Max Schubert's constant experimentation during the 1950s and 1960s. The first vintage of Bin 707 was in 1964. Bin 707 was discontinued after the 1969 vintage, but re-introduced with the 1976 vintage. In years where the grapes are not considered to be of sufficient quality this wine is not produced, such as in 1981 and 1995.In 1997 a cool summer was followed by warm weather in late March and April. Winter rainfall had been excellent in most districts and good rains continued into September and past bud-burst. Made from 100 % Cabernet Sauvignon the wine spent 15 months in 100 per cent new American oak.Tasting Notes: Opaque, deep red colour. The nose displays aromas of ripe red berries together with varietal, leafy cassis fruits. Stylish integrated oak, hints of smokiness and subtle cedar aromas. The palate is rich and ripe with dark cherry and raspberry fruit flavours, some dark chocolate and integrated smoky oak.The 1997 vintage is already beginning to show attractive maturation characters and will develop more quickly than the 1996 vintage. 13.6% alcohol volume.
