Bin 311 Chardonnay truly reflects the winemakers’ mantra ‘we always go where the fruit grows best and where it best suits style’. In 2017, the fruit sourcing has moved to cool-climate multi-regional; Adelaide Hills, Tasmania, Tumbarumba. In true Bin 311 style, it exhibits lemon/lime aromas and a mineral acid backbone, complemented by barrel fermentation and maturation in French oak.
PalateLemon sorbet runs in unison with slate / schist minerality. The palate has a fine structure with texture and remarkable linearity. Barrel ferment and lees derived complexity creates further intrigue. Taut, tight, linear and lithe! Tumbarumba's cool climate and high altitude continue to swing Australia's Chardonnay pendulum in the right direction.
NoseIntense white peach, lemon blossom, cashew nut, cream and elderflower integrate with a very subtle oak background.
