This wine will be featured during Saturday’s Legends of Bordeaux and Napa Tasting.
Producer’s Tasting Note: Bin 707 is a perfect cabernet sauvignon representation of Penfolds ‘House Style’: intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.
Critic Tasting Note: “Elegant bouquet of blackcurrant, cassis, blueberry, perfume, violet, vanilla, and chocolate with hints of eucalyptus.”
The success of Penfolds has been driven by generations of visionaries and innovators. From the beginning in 1844 to today, the merging of science, art, and innovation has driven Penfolds to become one of Australia’s most famed and respected winemakers.
After the success of early sherries and fortified wines, founders Dr Christopher, and Mary Penfold planted the vine cuttings they had carried on their voyage over to Australia. In 1844 the fledging vineyard was officially established as the Penfolds wine company at Magill Estate.
Despite great success, Penfolds never rests on its laurels. In 2012 Penfolds released its most innovative project to date – 12 handcrafted ampoules of the rare 2004 Kalimna Block Cabernet Sauvignon.
Two years later, Penfolds celebrated the 170th anniversary – having just picked up a perfect score of 100 for the 2008 Grange in two of the world’s most influential wine magazines. Today, Penfolds continues to hold dear the philosophies and legends – ‘1844 to evermore!’
