An complex nose of green apple, citrus, peach, toast and gun flint. The palate is rich but with crisp acidity which gives life to the vibrant citrus and stone fruit notes and balances the toasty and smoky finish. A truly magnificent example of a structured and complex Chardonnay.

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. 100% malolactic fermentation (all natural).

“Up there with the 2009 Bin A. Brave words indeed! Time will tell. If so, then tantamount to the finest Bin A released this century?!”
- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker
