Chardonnay South Australia
The national Chardonnay flagship, Bin 144 adds a new chapter to the history of great Australian wine, known as the white Grange, a quest to capture the holy grail of new world Chardonnay. After gathering components of the rarest and most outstanding excellence, precious harvests of the most intensely flavoured, well concentrated grapes, redolent with luscious apple, white peach and melon flavours, Penfolds have applied their compelling house style to create a memorable white wine of immense profile, stunning bouquets, solid palate structure and luxurious minerality.
Pale straw, brilliant lime hues. Green apple and citrus bouquets, grapefruit notes, malty, cashew nut oak. Complex and tightly structured, the flavoursome palate displays elegant lemon rind, melon and passionfruit characters, background cedar oak is balanced with a malty, biscuit character time spent on yeast lees. Texturally rich, viscosity, crispness and refined minerally acid, the wine finishes clean and soft with outstanding length.
