Koonunga Hill Chardonnay reflects Penfolds' multi-region, multi-vineyard blending policy, which enables winemakers to source the best parcels of fruit to produce consistently high quality wines from each vintage. A light to medium bodied Chardonnay with distinctive primary fruit characters, sustained intensity and a subtle underlay of moderate oak.
A very balanced palate, with 6 months yeast lees contact evident in the texture of the palate.
The nougat/praline oak follows through with a crunchy citrus-like mouth watering acid to finish.
A Chardonnay that’s not too ‘heavy’ showing a nice lightness to the palate.
