Citrus acidity, creamy, apple & melon
Zesty & full-bodied
Best known for showstopping reds, Penfolds do a mean chardy too. With extended time on lees and full malolactic fermentation for a rich, creamy mouthfeel, this is the perfect Chardonnay for lovers of the classic Australian version of the style.
From The Winemaker
Reserve Bin A Chardonnay has evolved into a wine that is now a distinctive, single-region style in its own right, with a contemporary and expressive Adelaide Hills chardonnay persona.
Fruit is hand-picked into small bins and then whole-bunch pressed. A portion of the juice is incrementally filled to barrel directly from the press and allowed to undergo a natural fermentation, sans inoculation.
Every new and seasoned French oak barrique is its own unique 225-litre ferment. Enhanced mouthfeel and complexity is achieved by fermenting and maturing on solids with sensitive, intermittent yeast lees stirring. 100% malolactic fermentation (all natural).
