SKU: PENBINACH18
Penfolds 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).

Grape Variety

Chardonnay

Region

Adelaide Hills

Size

750ml

Wine Style

White - rich, mouth filling, full-bodied

Palate

Flavours of mandarin and yoghurt with a rich mid-palate. A glycerolic viscosity interlocks with the natural acidity inducing a mouth-watering juiciness and just a rasp of flint at the very end, adding length and zest

Vintage

2018

”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
