2014 Penfolds Bin 14A Chardonnay

Vineyard and winemaking inputs of Penfolds Yattarna, before it changed to a more European style and doubled in price!

Description

Crafted from handpicked fruit from the Adelaide Hills viticulture region, every component is handpicked and whole bunch pressed, before 100% wild yeast fermentation. The wine is matured in 82% new French oak with the balance 1 year old, the lees retained and stirred regularly. 100% malo has softened the wine slightly but it remains tight, focused, linear and mineral, with a creamy, toasty edge.

Smells

Gunsmoke and savoury herbs over top of grapefruit, candle wax, florals and fresh linen.

Tastes

Classically Adelaide Hills in the mouth, with white peach, just-ripe nectarine and lemon tart, complex flinty, mineral aspects showing through the mid-palate, before a long toasty finish, the freshness and poise quite breath taking. Layers and layers of complexity unfurl after you've swallowed, showing why this wine deserves a place in your cellar for at least 5-7 years, many more if you appreciate mature Chardonnay.
