Penfolds Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay
Country: Australia, New South Wales
Tasting Notes: Pale straw with green hues. Citrus notes, compliments of Tumbarumba. Also appealingly apparent - apple, nashi pear, grated cucumber salad, snow pea and just the faintest floral undertone. A captivating ‘sea-spray’ lightness ethereally hovers above this wine – airy, wispy, seductive. Fresh nectarine and white stone fruit flavours prevail amid traces of fig. Hints of almond meal, unsalted cashew/brazil nut… with a beguiling creaminess and Chardonnay ‘waxiness’ texturally enlivening mouthfeel. Palate closure stylishly activated via a defined line of slate-like/mineral acid.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
