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 distinctive Adelaide Hills Chardonnay persona. All 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. 100% malolactic fermentation (all natural).
'My god this is a great wine. For years now Bin A Chardonnay has been racking up trophies all around the world, the style devilishly complex and intoxicating. Now in its 23rd vintage there is no doubt the top Penfolds Chardonnays are delivering on the promise of white Grange. The kind of wine I could guzzle all day long.' Justin Knock MW, Wine Director
