Winery Notes: Bin 311 Chardonnay truly reflects the winemakers' mantra of going where the fruit grows best and where it best suits style. In the previous release of Bin 311, fruit sourcing moved to multi-regional cool-climate regions. In true Bin 311 style, not unlike Yattarna, it exhibits lemon/lime aromas and a mineral acid backbone, complemented by barrel fermentation and maturation in mostly seasoned oak. Minimal filtration is employed, preserving elegant fruit flavours. 

Tasting Notes:

Very fine, enchantingly endowed with an elegant, ethereal lightness.

Yet the fruits are ‘intense’ - white peach and nectarine immediately jump the queue.

Textbook aligned geological and cool-climate descriptors - limestone, chalky/talcy minerality, saline(y), quartz.

Mouth-watering; avec linearity and persistence.

Surprisingly, oak hasn’t been mentioned
