Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay 2016
|Region||Australia, New South Wales, Tumbarumba|
The generosity promised on the nose is certainly delivered on the palate. A beguiling creamy texture energized by fresh, chalky acidity. Flavors of honeydew and tangelo fruits merge with those of slithered pistachio, cashew. Refreshing. Inviting.
Tumbarumba is the coolest wine growing region in New South Wales, thanks to altitudes ranging from nearly 1,000 feet to over 2,500 feet. Bin 311 has captured this cool-climate goodness in its Chardonnay, which is a bright-toned combo of salt, lemon rind and toasted nuts. The palate is a fine balance of fruit weight and prickly acidity with a chalky texture and a long lemony finish.
Tangy and juicy, with lemon and peach flavors at the core, leading to a mouthwatering finish. There's a light touch to the floral and spice accents, lingering softly on the finish. Drink now. 320 cases imported.
