Penfolds Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2006

88 points

Tumbarumba, NSW, Australia. 13.5%

This is rather good, and shows just how good Australia chardonnay has become. The 2nd commercial vintage from an alpine area in New South Wales I think. Nicely restrained alcohol, oak, fruit. The right balance between richness and austerity. Drink now to 2011.
