Description

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.

96pts. "Matured for 8 months in French barriques (40% new). Bright straw-green; as ever, Penfolds has this label nailed. It is a magical combination of power and finesse, thanks in part to low pH and high acidity. It is just starting to stretch its legs." James Halliday
