"Created to reflect a Penfolds contemporary winemaking approach, emphasising both regionality and maturation of cabernet sauvignon in fine-grained French oak. A style that is immediately Penfolds, whilst simultaneously illustrative of its ongoing search for diversity and style separation. An honest reflection of the region bearing testament of Penfolds longstanding commitment to the vineyards of Coonawarra." - Penfolds

James Halliday

This is a close relative of RWT Bin 798 – single region and 100% French oak – and is dramatically different from Bin 707. This is a purist's cabernet, turning its face on the mastery of the regional blending that is the birthmark of the Penfolds red wine style. Vive la difference. Tannin is the heartbeat here, cassis and olive tapenade wrapped around the tannin, not vice versa. A roasted side of baby lamb is the way to go.
