The Penfolds Cellar Reserve Chardonnay is sourced from the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. Meticulous vineyard selection ensures the highest quality of fruit is selected. Careful monitoring of barrel maturation and lees stirring produces a wine of great flavour intensity, structure and textural mouth-feel. Pale white gold in colour upon release. Pink grapefruit and white peach are forefront to nuances of cashew nut, nougat with subtle wafts of gun flint. Generous fruit weight of lemon curd, citrus and grapefruit pith surrounded by textural, mouth-coating phenolics and a minerally, mouth-watering acid finish.
