A mini Bin 707, designed for earlier drinking, this Bin 407 has intense cassis, elderberry and mulberry flavours. The rich fruit is supported by crunchy tannins and fine spices. Classic Aussie Cabernet.

Mostly stainless steeel fermented, with a portion completing fermentation in barrel. Matured for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak, mostly new.
Penfolds wasn’t founded with the intention to establish a prosperous winery in the famous Barossa Valley. Rather it was simply by accident that it became what it is today: one of Australia’s most famous and well-known wineries. At the age of 33, after having finished his studies of medicine at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, Dr. Rawson Penfold decided to emigrate to Australia. Traditionally, Englishmen for many centuries possess a high wine culture and thus it perhaps isn’t surprising that Dr. Penfolds brought wine seedlings along which he has bought just in time before his departure in France. In 1844 he and his family settled in Magill in the Barossa Valley and founded the winery Penfolds. The country house which they lived in was called after the old home country of his wife “The Grange”, a name which 110 years later was the inspiration for the world’s most famous and greatest red wine.
