    Penfolds has a rich history dating back to 1844 when Dr. Christopher and Mary Penfold arrived in Australia with a vine cutting and a bold vision. They purchased 500 acres of land in South Australia and began producing tonics, brandies, and fortified wines made from grapes and Australian sunshine. Christopher's planting of vines and his philosophies continue to influence Penfolds to this day. Mary Penfold, the unsung chief of Penfolds, played a significant role in the winery's experimentations, growth and winemaking philosophies. Max Schubert became the company's first Chief Winemaker in 1948 and created the long-lasting Penfolds Grange in the 1950s. The tradition of 'bin wines' began in 1959 with Kalimna Bin 28 becoming the first official Penfolds Bin number wine. Penfolds continues to innovate, with the release of the rare 2004 Kalimna Block Cabernet Sauvignon in 2012 and the 170th anniversary celebration in 2014. Today, Penfolds remains one of Australia's most famed and respected winemakers, driven by generations of visionaries and innovators who strive for excellence in winemaking.

    First released in 1993 with the 1990 vintage, Bin 407 was produced 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. This is a textbook definition of cabernet sauvignon - varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-region  blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of American and French oak.

    The Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 (Gift Boxed) showcase a wine that has been carefully crafted using a unique blend of maturation techniques and vintage conditions that have resulted in an exceptional South Australian cabernet sauvignon. Maturation for this wine involved 12 months in French (25% new) and American (12% new) oak hogsheads, while the remainder was matured in 1-y.o. French and American oak hogsheads. This maturation process infused the wine with subtle but complex oak flavours that perfectly complement the fruit aromas and flavours. The vintage conditions were ideal for growing the grapes in Coonawarra, Wrattonbully, Padthaway, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills regions. Padthaway yields were 25% above the norm and the mild summer and autumn conditions in all regions allowed the grapes to ripen evenly and slowly. The wine's crimson red color entices the senses, while the nose opens up with varieties of blackberry, mulberries and violets. Aromas of bay leaf, wet tobacco and baking spices provide further intrigue. On the palate, the wine is concentrated with cool dark fruits and the notes of grilled capsicum and cumin spiced eggplant create a unique savory flavor profile infused by cherry wood smoke and sandalwood. The tannins are firm and persistent, with a hint of bitter dark chocolate. While the wine is lively and energetic, it is built to last and is approachable yet clearly designed for a long spell in the dungeon. This wine is a perfect match for savory dishes and will continue to evolve and develop its complexity until at least 2055.

    A beatiful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that's ripe, but which retains its varietal identity and also a sense of balance. Lovely blackcurrant fruit with fine- grained tannins and good structure, with some blackcurrant bud, some tar and some cedar spice. Really well integrated amd quite delicious. Should also age well. -  Jamie Goode, 96 Points
