Product description

Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when fruit was directed to other wines), nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003 or 2011 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest Cabernets. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Vineyard: Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Port Lincoln.
Maturation: 17 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads.
Tasting notes: Colour: Deep and dark red. Nose: Nothing if not ‘complex’! At first it certainly doesn’t shout Cabernet-teriyaki, Japanese sauces (beef and sweeter mushroom stock), nori. Sea-spray/shale/seaweed/iodine to the fore. But if in doubt delve closer – trademark Block 42 Cabernet pungency coupled with passata (tomato) aromatics ascend to sign-off on a 100% varietally pure pedigree. Barely perceptible oak (but 100% new!) aligns with scents of boardroom worn-leather to convey this wine’s many non-fruit derived credentials. All the above coalesce with an odd transient waft that surely must come from a bakery/patisserie – freshly baked vanilla sponge in particular. No? Really?! Palate: Saturated dark fruits – blackberry and blackcurrant with flourishes of aniseed and black bean. A clearly demarcated oak core – radiating structural and flavour appendages that afford impressive palate weight and depth. Localised (top of mouth) peripheral/fringe tannins in cohorts with a balanced acidity deliver to palate length expectation. ‘Made to measure’ layers of unadulterated Cabernet flavours, a noticeable grip, and a deceptively complex mouthfeel, construe to tick any remaining boxes. Watch this space – an unnamed yet learned source has already suggested that this vintage could be a Bin 707 sleeper? Word’s out…
