2006 Penfolds Chardonnay Bin 311

Wine Description

Bin 311 Chardonnay is sourced from a single region and each year a selection will be made from a region to best reflect the Bin 311 style. Individual sites are then chosen to respect the 'terroir' and to reflect the characters of both vineyard and region. Penfolds has worked with Chardonnay from Tumbarumba since the early 1990s and the 2006 Bin 311 Chardonnay is an outstanding vintage. The nose shows aromas of fruit, leaning towards the citrus spectrum, complimented by a nougat and almost ethereal, marzipan character. This is an elegant wine with a strong core of primary fruit running read more...across the palate - intense grapefruit and Granny Smith apple flavours are supported by backbone of mineral acid, leading to a full mid-palate induced by aging in old French oak barriques. Drink now to 2014 with chicken, salad and seafood. (hide)
