100% Cabernet Sauvignon
12 Months In French Oak (21% New) And American Oak (9% New) Hogsheads
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.
Medium-bodied; elegantly framed. No mid-palate deficiencies!
Blackcurrant and plum fruits sit alongside mocha/chocolate/walnut flavours.
Oak? A genteel (washed, older oak) character – affording a maturation, not a flavour imprint.
Mouth-watering with fine, rounded/polished tannins.
In sharp palate contrast – a finessed, varietally-driven alternative to the muscular and Grange-like Bin 707 Cabernet.
