Bin 311 唐巴蘭姆巴霞多丽 2015

Bin 311 霞多丽源自天气凉爽(有人会说有风险、贫瘠)的单一产区,每年的选材尽显 Bin 311 风格。2014年,再一次选用唐巴兰姆巴的果实,这里有澳洲最宜人、最凉爽的气候,海拔较高,适于葡萄栽培。自 1990 年代初,Penfolds 就开始栽培唐巴兰姆巴的霞多丽。在陈年橡木桶中发酵和熟化产生的矿物酸极具 Bin 311 风格。稍加过滤,保留优雅的果味。

When To Drink

Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Drinking window now – 2024.

Taste Description

Very pale straw.

Fruits instantly arise ever so effortlessly - guava, lychee, green mango.
Followed by (theorised) barrel fermentation-induced nougat, and wafts of freshly-baked apple galette.
And to sign-off, whilst there is acknowledgement of a whiff of cordite (lees-derived?), no oak registers…

The generosity promised on the nose is certainly delivered on the palate.
A beguiling creamy texture energised by fresh, chalky acidity.
Flavours of honeydew and tangelo fruits merge with those of slithered pistachio, cashew.
Refreshing. Inviting.

“ It's finely textured, delicately floral and harmoniously seamless, lingering with tense yet ripe acidity. Another great Bin 311 and one for the cellar.” - Tyson Stelzer
Winemaker Quotes

“A great example of a regional cool-climate Bin 311 release from a warmer vintage.  Often ‘marginal’, not in 2016 - Tumbarumba delivers impressive generosity.”

“Yet again for Bin 311, the fruit certainly does all the talking! New oak? No thanks … not required.” 

“Continues to retain a wonderful point-of-difference when alongside other Penfolds chardonnays.”

- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

Vintage Conditions

Winter rainfall replenished the soil profiles and water reserves for the start of the growing season. 2016 was one of the warmest growing seasons on record. Temperatures were well above the long term average during spring which encouraged excellent canopy growth and fruit-set. A warm and dry summer led to a very early and compressed harvest. Tumbarumba 2016 vintage produced high yields of great quality.

First Vintage: 2005.
