Another good example of Penfolds lifting their white wine making programme closer to their established Red Programme. This Chardonnay walks the line between lean and luscious and does it well. Struck match and stone fruit. From the cool climate area of Tumbarumba NSW a proven area for quality Chardonnay. Drink now or cellar for up to 3 years.

Pale lemon in colour. Quite citric on nose and palate. Restrained. Minerality-almost salty - finishes dry. Certainly in the new wave crisp restrained style dialling back the ripe fruit and vanillan Oak. No Dolly Parton here!!

Notes of smoky flint and stone fruit. Excellent cool climate fruit. Great intensity some creaminess. When first tasted in Feb 2011 it was leaner and acidic. Now in full bloom. Most impressed and will buy more. This 311 is the mini Yattarna which uses the previous oak barrels - like 389 and Grange. 18-

A bit of lemon custard, a touch of oak to add character.

Like the buttered fruit of Meursault meets the saltiness of Chablis
