Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay 2014
Color: Very light straw Nose: Time on yeast lees and regular stirring has delivered a Bin 311 of great aromatic complexity. Biscuity, brioche amid scents of roasted nuts - hazelnut, macadamia. Elements of sea spray with honeydew and guava fruits. Palate: Again - a leesy complexity, quite biscuity - shortbread? At the same time this wine manifests an understated elegance, adorned with lemon curd/citrus. A balanced chalky acid structure courts a classic tapered finish. Stylistically, no new oak required.
