Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay
Description: Winemaker's Notes
Very light straw color. Time on the yeast lees and regular stirring has delivered a bin 311 of great aromatic complexity. Biscuity, brioche amid scents of roasted nuts - hazelnut and macadamia. Elements of sea spray with honeydew and guava fruits are present on the nose as well. A leesy complexity, quite biscuity, shortbread, and at the same time this wine manifests an understated elegance, adorned with lemon curd and citrus. A balanced chalky acid structure courts a classic tapered finish.

Critical Acclaim
Australian Wine Companion - "A small crop picked before the rain, fermented and matured in used French barriques for 8 months with stirring. In the minimalist style that suites Tumbarumba so well, and needs a year or two to exert its authority."
James Suckling - "Another skilled execution of edgy, modern Australian chardonnay from the cool climate of Tumbarumba, this has a heap of powerful fruit in the lime and nectarine spectrum, boosted by some lees-derived creamy and savoury notes, delivering biscuity complexity. Flavors are all nicely integrated, stony and smooth, beautifully balanced. "
