Critic tasting note: "Bin 707 is, as always, a gargantuan Cab that's still in its infancy. But all is in place for a long life in cellar, from the lucid aromas of semidried plums and berries, earthy, peppery spice, graphite and dark-chocolate oak characteristics to the fine, muscular, tannins. There's harmony throughout despite the wine's current enormity. Don't open until 2025 at the earliest or cellar until 2040 at least. Christina Pickard" - 93/100, Wine Enthusiast

Inspired by the iconic jet that took it to the world. The rich and powerful Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon, our first commercial release of a single cabernet-based wine, is linked to Max Schubert’s dream of making a great Australian red wine that could last at least 20 years. During the ‘50s and early ‘60s cabernet sauvignon was mostly used for blending, but Schubert’s breakthrough with the varietal as a stand-alone wine came in 1964 with inaugural vintage. Early Bin 707s were typically open fermented under wax-lined header boards and matured in seasoned old oak (rather than new oak). The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when fruit was directed to other wines) nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003, 2011 or 2017 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available).
