Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay

2015 Penfolds Bin 311$19.99
Regular price $39.99
A result of a warmer-than-average spring and a cooler-than-average summer in 2015, this has a very compelling array of ripe nectarines, peaches and mangoes on the nose with hints of lemon butter and lime zest as well as bath salts. The oak is assertive but well matched by the fruit intensity. The palate's framed in fine, fresh acidity, while white-peach and yellow-grapefruit flavors run the distance with smooth build and some gentle honey and praline. This is neatly balanced, cleanly flavored and very attractive. Drink now.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
