Bin 311 Chardonnay is sourced to style from a single, cool-climate (and some would say risky, marginal) region. In 2017, fruit sourcing has moved to cool-climate multi regional; Adelaide Hills, Tasmania and Tumbarumba, (which Penfolds has sourced from since the early 1990s.) The Bin 311 style typically exhibits a mineral acid backbone, complemented by barrel fermentation and maturation in predominately seasoned oak. Minimal filtration is employed, preserving elegant fruit flavours.
