The show success and outstanding quality of recent vintages of Penfolds Bin 707 has seen this wine become increasingly recognised as the international benchmark for Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. Although the 1991 Bin 707 is showing more elegant characters than the 1990, due to the cooler year, it is still one of the most intense and flavoursome Cabernets made in Australia, and as such requires medium to long term cellaring to realise its full potential.

Critic Scores & reviews
"Bin 707 perfectly reflects the Penfolds ‘House Style’ through a cabernet sauvignon lens: intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multivineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing. Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003 or 2011. Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest cabernets. Lovely complex cedar, blackcurrant, meaty, demi-glace, dried herb aromas. The palate is deeply concentrated with plenty blackcurrant, meaty flavours, underlying mocha, malt oak and chocolaty, ripe tannins. It finishes fresh and sweet; long and flavourful. A great Bin 707. Perfect drinking now but will hold."
"Suffers a little in comparison to the gigantic 1990. Still, this 1991 version is a highly successful wine. Tannin probably a little too strong for the elegance of the fruit. Extravagant flavours of coffee and aniseed. Blackcurrant and toast. Excellent length. Needs its tannin to calm so that its elegance can shine."

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.
Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.
Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.
With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.
If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.
Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!
Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.
Multi-regional wines are wines that are made using grapes from multiple regions or even countries. These wines are often blended together to create a unique flavor profile that may be difficult to achieve using grapes from a single region.
Multi-regional wines can be blended from different grape varieties or different vintages.
Multi-regional wines can also be blended from different countries as well. For example, a wine that combines grapes from Napa Valley, California, and Barossa Valley, Australia, would be multi-regional wine.
Multi-regional wines can offer a unique and complex flavor profile, as well as being a way for winemakers to create a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts.

About the brand Penfolds
Penfolds, a renowned winery steeped in history, traces its origins back to 1844 when it was founded by Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold, a young English doctor, and his wife Mary. Nestled in Magill, on the outskirts of Adelaide, they established a humble cottage and planted vine cuttings from the South of France, laying the foundation for what would become an iconic winemaking legacy.
Fast forward to 1989, when Peter Gago joined the Penfolds team. With his exceptional talent and expertise, he ascended to the position of Chief Winemaker in 2002, leading a remarkable team of experienced winemakers. Under his guidance, they diligently uphold the traditions set by the previous owners and continually strive for excellence in winemaking.
Central to Penfolds' winemaking philosophy is their signature multi-regional blending approach. By sourcing grapes from diverse regions, such as Adelaide, the Barossa Valley, the Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Limestone Coast, and McLaren Vale, they craft wines that showcase the finest qualities of each terroir. These wines are a harmonious fusion of flavors, meticulously balanced to achieve an exceptional taste profile.
Penfolds' dedication to quality is evident not only in their grape selection but also in their winemaking techniques. Embracing the use of fine-grained American and French oak, along with barrel fermentation and maturation, they enhance the wines' complexity and character.
Throughout its existence, Penfolds has played a pivotal role in the evolution of winemaking not just in Australia but across the world. With a legacy spanning nearly two centuries, they have firmly established themselves as one of Australia's most esteemed and influential wineries.
Today, Penfolds sources grapes from an extensive network of over 220 vineyards scattered throughout Australia. From this vast collection, only the very best grapes are chosen, ensuring that every bottle bears the mark of the brand's uncompromising commitment to excellence. Whether enjoyed locally or savored by wine enthusiasts worldwide, Penfolds wines continue to exemplify the epitome of Australian winemaking mastery.
