After missing the 2011 vintage (when fruit for the required style and quality was not available), this remarkable house-style red returns with a release that retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest Cabernets. Full-bodied, mouth-filling, complex, layered – Penfolds’ 2012 Bin 707 is big in every way. Characters of blackcurrant and just-baked, spiced, chocolate fondant dominate with plenty of natural fruit sweetness. The tannins are present, but not overwhelming. The exceptional make and vintage conditions of the ’12 will ensure this wine will live on for decades.
