Bin 311 Chardonnay is sourced to style from a single, cool-climate (and some would say risky, marginal) region. In 2015, fruit sourcing has again come from Tumbarumba – one of Australia’s most exciting, cool-climate, high-altitude, viticultural districts. Penfolds has worked with Chardonnay from Tumbarumba since the early 1990s. The Bin 311 style typically exhibits a mineral acid backbone, complemented by barrel fermentation and maturation in seasoned oak. Minimal filtration is employed, preserving elegant fruit flavours.
"Very tight, lean and almost Chablis-like. Absolutely up my boulevard" Jancis Robinson MW
