Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants.

Cabernet Sauvignon was at the heart of Penfolds patriarch Max Schubert's quest for the singular first growth grand Australian red, after his return from Bordeux. The original plan for Grange was that it should be an exclusively Cabernet wine, however Schubert found Australian Cabernet to be unreliable for the purposes of an elite flagship wine. Today, everything about Bin 707 is large scale, Penfolds seek physiologically ripe fruit with equally strong flavours derived from partial barrel fermentation and maturation under new American oak.
As ever, Bin 707 stands as an immensely concentrated style with dark fruit balanced by well prior use new oak, and powerful, but not overwhelming tannins. The best batches of sophisticated Cabernet fruit are always reserved for the Bin 707, if and only if, the quality of the vintage meets Penfolds exacting standards for what is arguably Australia's best Cabernet wine. The overt, aromatic contribution from the legendary, ancient Kalimna Block 42 vineyard offers soul, purity and character. This exclusively Cabernet Sauvignon wine, sourced from some of Australia's most elite vineyards, completed malolactic, and underwent sixteen months maturation in new American oak hogsheads. Alcohol 14.5%
Impenetrable black with a concession of purple. Saturated dark fruit flavours of blackberry/ mulberry fuse with notes of dark chocolate, Ribena and liquorice. The palate displays an oscillation and juxtaposition between a solid, assertive and muscular first impression, and later, an opulent, saturated and succulent demeanour. Blackberry and loganberry fruit flavours glide across a supportive continuum of tannin and oak.
