2017 Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay (750ml)

Chardonnay from Tumbarumba, New South Wales, Australia

2017 Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay

From Adelaide Hills, Tasmania and Tumbarumba, matured for 8 months in French oak (25% new). Super-elegant; carries itself with sotto voce confidence, fruit, oak and acid in nigh-on perfect balance; a crisp, lively finish.

Struck match, touches of toasted hazelnut and grilled peach and fresh lime notes give the 2017 Chardonnay Bin 311 ample complexity on the nose and palate. It's medium-bodied, with a touch of creaminess on the mid-palate and a long, silky finish. New for this year, it's a blend of fruit from the Adelaide Hills (56%), Tasmania (27%) and Tumbarumba (17%), so in the United States, it carries the inauspicious GI of South Eastern Australia. Don't be misled by that, as it's a serious, classy wine for a very reasonable price.

Aromas of nectarines, papaya, guava, white and yellow peaches and a whiff of lemon, all surrounded by smoothly delivered wood and winemaker influence. The palate is taut and crunchy with pithy grapefruit and cucumber crunch, then a wave of richer honeysuckle and light biscuity notes. Adelaide Hills, Tasmania and Tumbarumba fruit sourcing. Drink or hold.
