Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay 2022

Penfolds

Case Format: 6x75cl

Bin 311 Chardonnay truly reflects the winemakers’ mantra of going where the fruit grows best and where it best suits style. From the 2017 release of Bin 311, fruit sourcing moved from single region to multi-regional. Today the cool climate vineyards of Tasmania, Tumbarumba and the Adelaide Hills are our primary source of fine quality chardonnay. In true Bin 311 style, not unlike Yattarna, it exhibits lemon/lime aromas and a mineral acid backbone, complemented by barrel fermentation and maturation in new and seasoned oak.

CRITIC REVIEWS

Tina Gellie

A third each of Tasmania, Adelaide Hills and Tumbarumba fruit, Baby Yattarna is a belter this vintage, benefiting from a significant portion of wine originally destined for Yattarna and Reserve Bin A. The generosity of the latters ripe nectarine and pistachio croissant richness grabs you first, but then cleansing acidity, oyster shell tang and bright lemon balm, grapefruit peel and lime juice perkiness take over, meaning your initial impression of opulence ends up as graceful and restrained. The eight months in French barrique (34% new) delivers roundness and mouthfeel more than toasty spice, and the pure fruit flavours linger long. A great buy this vintage, for drinking now or to cellar. Released at £32.

Extremely restrained and chewy. Quite a bit of oak influence on the nose. Australian austerity means it’s clean and lifted but not that much fun on the palate. Light smokiness – I don’t suppose any of these ingredients have seen much oxygen!
