Koonunga Hill Chardonnay from Penfolds is a pure, delicately creamy white wine from the South Australian wine region.
In the glass, this wine shines in a bright straw yellow with glittering reflections. The fruity bouquet is characterized by juicy, fresh nectarines. Fine oak nuances and wonderful hints of summer blossom honey are added. With juicy fruit of peach and melon, this Australian white wine convinces the palate. Delicately creamy vanilla notes combine with notes of malt to create a wonderfully spicy-fruity aroma. The body has depth and complexity, which is perfectly accompanied by a fine acidity and the long, fresh reverberation.
Vinification of the Penfold Chardonnay Koonunga Hills
The Chardonnay grapes for this white wine grow mainly in Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. After harvesting the berries, they are fermented in French oak barrels in the Penfolds winery.
