SKU: PENBINACH21
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 regular yeast lees stirring.

Wine Style

White - crisp, thirst quenching, light-bodied

Palate

Fresh white stone fruits carry through to the palate, layered and textural. Wet stone minerality provides allure and balance to sweet nougat and cashew. The acidity is soft, pillowy and supportive of the very fine grained phenolics. The finish has tremendous length, with layers of complexity competing for attention

”Fermented and matured in French barriques (50% new, 22% 1yo). This wastes no time in establishing its extreme quality and complexity. It is a complete wine, with power, focus and length welded together and white peach and pink grapefruit allied with a shaft of cleansing acidity. Hard to resist right now. All up, this chardonnay makes the most of a great vintage.”
– James Halliday
