2018 SINGLE BLOCK B3 CHARDONNAY

Pale straw green colour with aromas of lime, wet slate and almond croissant. The palate is brimming with bright primary citrus and stone fruits, underpinned by racy minerality and a long saline finish.

This wine is sourced from a single block which consistently produces fruit of a superior quality and warrants a separate bottling. Block B3 was planted in 1995 to the Penfolds P58 clone, on deep well drained black clay loams and produces low yields of intensely flavoured well balanced fruit. Hand-picked on the 14th March, the fruit was whole-bunched pressed straight to barrel with full solids. Naturally fermented in French oak in which the wine was matured for a further 9 months before blending and bottling in December 2018. Pale straw green colour with aromas of lime, wet slate and almond croissant. The palate is brimming with bright primary citrus and stone fruits, underpinned by racy minerality and a long saline finish.
