Winemaker Notes

Very pale straw with lime green hues. On the nose, fleshy white peach, lemon verbena, a pithy citrus lift and a spray of spring blossom. A mascarpone creaminess and scents of emulsified toasted cashew and almond nougat. Subtle flint, wet stone and sea spray. (Granted, a blend from many soils, vineyards, climes. But three states ... really?!). The result is aromatically relaxed – character and style. Complex. Very fine, enchantingly endowed with an elegant, ethereal lightness on the palate. Yet the fruits are ‘intense’ - white peach and nectarine immediately jump the queue. Textbook aligned geological and cool-climate descriptors - limestone, chalky/talcy minerality, saline(y), quartz. Mouth-watering; avec linearity and persistence. Surprisingly, oak hasn’t been mentioned ...

Critical Acclaim

JH 94
Australian Wine Companion
68/25/6% Tasmania/ Piccadilly/Henty fruit. Matured 8 months in 41% new French oak barriques. There is an immediacy and an amicable approachability to this vintage, thanks to mid-palate presence, intricately uniting the white peach, lemon and fig of impeccably ripe fruit with the cashew nut of French oak and the subtle struck-flint reductive allure that signs Penfolds chardonnay. Fine-boned structure characterises a long finish, defined by a glorious sweep of brilliantly illuminated, crystalline acidity that spells out medium-term promise. A great 311.
JS 93
James Suckling
Has a very well-made feel with vibrant chardonnay fruit – lemon, peach and nectarine – as well as nicely placed barrel-fermentation complexity. Quite zesty and linear palate with flavors that run from citrus to peach and melon, and there’s good purity throughout. Sourced from Tasmania, Adelaide Hills and Henty.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Quite smoky and toasty, but also richly fruited and citrusy, the 2020 Bin 311 Chardonnay is a lovely example of Australian Chardonnay. Aged eight months in 41% new French oak, this blend from Tasmania (68%), Piccadilly (25%) and Henty (7%) is bold and flavorful, medium-bodied, with a ripe, custardy feel and lingering, citrusy-crisp finish. It's the best value of these three Penfolds Chardonnays, loaded with pineapple and citrus notes and bursting with flavor for a price that's competitive with comparable wines out of California.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Deep, complex and elegant, with a powerful core of poached pear, dried apricot and marmalade, details of toasted hazelnut and green cardamom, and a touch of sea salt on the mouthwatering finish.

Penfolds Wines, Australia
Penfolds Wines Winery Video

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.
