(search item no. 74923)

PRICE ON 9/15/2014: $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:

Founded by a young, English doctor in 1844, Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines that have changed the landscape of Australian winemaking. Over the past century, Penfolds has 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 standout wines, both white and red, have been released under the Penfolds masthead. Under the direction of master winemaker, Peter Gago, Penfolds is now found in every major wine market in the country. Extraordinary wines such as Block 42 and Bin 60A have also been released during his tenure. Penfolds wines are now widely celebrated for their diversity and quality across many price-points. The strength of Penfolds is that the wine comes first. Penfolds' range of table wines is utterly Australian, evoking a generosity of spirit and the beauty of the Australian landscape.
