  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Rich and resonant, this is a vibrant red with lovely currant and blackberry flavors on a fine-grained frame, echoing fruit and the merest touch of herb and spice on the round finish. 17,642 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Saturated bright, deep ruby. Captivating aromas of blackcurrant, lead pencil, tar, vanilla, mint and bourbon; the oak contributes an incense quality without overpowering the wine other aromatic components. Supple, juicy and intensely flavored, with bright, ripe acids framing the fruit and giving the wine lovely inner-mouth perfume. Lively and consistent from start to finish. Finishes very long, with ripe tannins and a note of bitter chocolate. A particularly strong vintage for this wine.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    The outstanding 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 is a thick, rich, full-bodied Cabernet emphasizing copious quantities of cassis fruit. Pure, with nicely integrated oak, acidity, and tannin, it cuts a broad swath across the palate. While still young and grapy, this 1998 is loaded with potential.

  • Over the past 40 years, Penfolds has earned its reputation as Australia's premier red wine producer and has played a large part in putting Australian wines on the world map. Over the past five years, winemaker Peter Gago has been instrumental in keeping Penfolds at the top of the Austrailian wine industry. Penfolds Grange, the estate's flagship, is characterized by its rich texture, complexity, and concentrated fruit. Penfolds's entire collection spans across many styles and labels including Penfolds Super Premiums, Special Bin Range, Cellar Reserve Range, Bin Range, Thomas Hyland Range, Koonunga Hill Range, Rawson's Retreat Range, and Fortified Wines.
    More than half of all Australian wine production takes place in the South Australia region—home to the Shiraz-specializing Barossa Valley as well as revered Riesling zones Clare Valley and Eden Valley. South Australia is too large and diverse to generalize about climate or topography, with both cooler coastal areas and warmer inland sections—but rainfall is generally low throughout and drought is a constant concern.
