Winemaker's Notes

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Chardonnay is sourced from multiple Australian wine districts including significant contributions from the Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley. It is a full-flavored style with distinctive primary fruit characters, sustained intensity and a subtle underlay of moderate oak.

Color: Brilliant pale straw

Nose: Aromas of lifted stone fruits and freshly crushed nectarine are surrounded by a subtle spicy (freshly ground nutmeg) oak. A honey character, from lees contact, gives the wine depth.

Palate: A full-flavored wine with fruit - rockmelon and yellow peach - at the fore. A vanilla and malt creaminess deepens the palate and provides complexity. The acid is subtle and ensures a refreshing finish.

Food pairings: Ideally suited to aperitifs, chicken and salad.

This is a decent wine for the money, but I found it to be a little on the sugary side. I like my Chardonnay's a tad bit drier. I'd buy it again in a pinch, but not one of my favourites. www.meetfolksonline.com
