2001 Penfolds Chardonnay Koonunga Hill
Pale straw with brilliant green hues. The bouquet has plenty of melon and nectarine fruit characters with some tropical overtones. A pleasant creamy and butterscotch character and sweet nut influence adds complexity. On the palate, the wine is full flavoured and rich with excellent varietal fruit and perfectly balanced oak integration. Fruit flavours have been complexed by yeast contact and creamy malolactic fermentation has given the wine a pleasant softness and low acid finish.
