Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay 2016 750ml

SKU: 8001839

Bin 311 Chardonnay is sourced to style from a single, cool-climate region. In 2016, fruit sourcing has again come from Tumbarumba – one of Australia’s most exciting, cool-climate, high-altitude, viticultural districts. Penfolds has worked with chardonnay from Tumbarumba since the early 1990s. The Bin 311 style typically exhibits lemon/lime aromas and a mineral acid backbone, complemented by barrel fermentation and maturation in seasoned oak. Minimal filtration is employed, preserving elegant fruit flavours.

  • When to drink

    Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Drinking window now – 2024.

  • Nose

    Fruits instantly arise ever so effortlessly - guava, lychee, green mango.
    Followed by (theorised) barrel fermentation-induced nougat, and wafts of freshly-baked apple galette.
    And to sign-off, whilst there is acknowledgement of a whiff of cordite (lees-derived?), no oak registers…

  • Palate

    The generosity promised on the nose is certainly delivered on the palate.
    A beguiling creamy texture energised by fresh, chalky acidity.
    Flavours of honeydew and tangelo fruits merge with those of slithered pistachio, cashew.
    Refreshing. Inviting.
