Penfolds Reserve Bin A Chardonnay 2018
An ebullient Adelaide Hills Chardonnay far from its usual reserved, cool personality. Highly expressive and generous, no doubt the result of a warm lead in to harvest. Burnt match, white peach, nectarine and citrus. The palate is vibrant with a real depth of fruit intensity: preserved lemon savouriness, cashew nuttiness and balance of oak and acidity. The high percentage of new French oak (80%) is slurped right up, the wine is definitely up to it. Love the fruit tingle juiciness to close. So alive.
