Penfolds Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2018 Screw
Penfolds Bin311 Chardonnay
VINTAGE : 2017
WINE STYLE : White Wine
VARIETAL : Chardonnay
APPELLATION : Australia
Fresh and inviting – complexed by yeast lees-derived nougat and ground pistachio/almond/roasted chestnut.
Scents of deconstructed crème brûlée ‘(flamed top and custard middle), enhanced by ripe white nectarine and peach fruits.
A liberal sprinkle of crushed rock/pebble dust (quartz, limestone?) certainly adds interest.
A very lively palate of freshly sliced cucumber and lime citrus flavors hovering over a soft and succulent acid underpinning.
A tight phenolic grip induces wonderful length and drive to the finish.
A cool climate regional trio – three different chardonnay expressions of texture/acidity/tightness/purity coalesce, propelling combined fruits/flavors.
A ‘new Bin 311’ is revealed. Nice.
