2008 Penfolds Reserve Bin 08A Chardonnay

Tyson Stelzer, www.clearaboutwine.com.au

Penfolds Reserve Bin 08A Chardonnay is so far ahead of the pack that when it cleaned up every other Chardonnay to win three trophies – and then every other variety to win the best wine of show – at the National Wine Show last year I knew precisely what it was long before it was announced. This wine nails that precarious balance between desperate purity, nervy acidity and pristine minerality on one side, and on the other, gorgeous complexity of roast nuts, white peach and grapefruit blossom.
