Winemaking and Drinking

Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality cabernet sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet still with structure and depth of flavour. Textbook cabernet sauvignon, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak.

VINEYARD REGION Padthaway, Coonawarra, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley

COLOUR Deep, lively red

NOSE Instantly cabernet, exposed by fragrant violet, lavender, blue fruits and the faintest waft of red apple blossom. And yet there’s much more to captivate the olfactory senses, with scented illuminations of:

• Baked delights – Danish pastry/croissant and rye bread crust.

• A Mediterranean ratatouille – laced with thyme, oregano and pulped olive.

• Chamois, new-buck leather.

• Cedar – yet any oak presence certainly respectful of fruit.

PALATE Medium-bodied. The complete package: Fruit: Juicy redcurrant jelly, dark plum (and plum acidity), fresh rhubarb. Acidity: ‘Just right’ – a lively and lifted conveyance from initial lip-contact to sated ingestion. Tannins: Integrated, polished-graphite tannins Oak: Seamlessly hidden/concealed oak. Melding well with fruit. Overall, cabernet balance and definition, sans exaggeration.
