Penfolds Koonunga Hill Semillon Chardonnay 2002
(search item no. 74923)

PRICE ON 5/22/2015: $13.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Pale straw with brilliant green hues. Nose: Plenty of melon and nectarine fruit characters with some tropical overtones. A pleasant creamy and butterscotch character and sweet nut influence adds complexity. Palate: Full flavoured and rich with excellent varietal fruit and perfectly balanced oak integration. Fruit flavours have been complexed by yeast contact and creamy malolactic fermentation has given the wine a pleasant softness and low acid finish. Serving and cellaring suggestions: A white for everyday drinking and casual entertaining, Koonunga Hill Chardonnay is made to be enjoyed now or cellared for up to two years. It is ideal with most entrees and white meat dishes, especially chicken.

About Penfolds Wines:

Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon
