Koonunga Hill Chardonnay reflects Penfolds' multi-region,
multi-vineyard blending policy, which enables winemakers to
source the best parcels of fruit to produce consistently high quality
wines from each vintage. A light to medium bodied Chardonnay
with distinctive primary fruit characters, sustained intensity and
a subtle underlay of moderate oak.
Light yellow. Scents of tangerine, lemon and melon are given depth by a leesy accent and a suggestion of toasted nuts. Succulent, smooth and creamy, with ripe citrus and honeydew flavors clarified by refreshing acidity. Closes smooth and broad, with good length and hint of warmth.
