Penfolds Koonunga Hill Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; how times have changes; its arguable that Koonunga Hill Chardonnay has better bloodlines than Koonunga Hill Shiraz in some vintages. This is a complex wine with perfectly ripened fruit, the palate long and balanced. 13% alc.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A simple but well-captured expression of fruit-driven chardonnay that has impressive poise, balance and restraint: plenty of stone fruits all round, hints of spice and a crisp, satisfying finish. Shop around for some very sharp pricing.

Light-bodied, clean and fresh stone fruit flavour; dry, crisp finish. No obvious oak.

Fragrant citrus, nectarine and white peach fruit-driven, elegant style; good length; will hold.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Honest, simple peaches and cream chardonnay with light aromas of uncomplicated fruit, nutty vanilla oak and herbal undertones. Forward and tropical, with a slightly hollow centre, it finishes soft, with notes of green cashew.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; ripe, tangy stone fruit and melon aromas, then a complex, medium-bodied palate which shows sophisticated winemaking inputs.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is moderately intense and quite complex; fruit-driven. The palate has fair length but there is not over much character on the mid-palate.
