Penfolds Hyland Koonunga Hill Chard 2009
Color: Straw in color. Nose: Clean and fresh with citrus notes and lifted florals that give way to green melon and subtle spicy oak nuances. Palate: A light to medium bodied Chardonnay with orchard fruits and citrus notes. A gentle creaminess provides texture on the palate while brisk acidity keeps the finish crisp and clean, with refreshing length.
External Reviews for Penfolds Hyland Koonunga Hill Chard
Elegant, lifted white peach fruit notes and lovely "bread and butter pudding" complexity.
This full-flavored wine has an appealing immediacy, with honeydew melon and nutmeg spicy sweetness on the mid-palate and a lively green apple edge maintaining freshness throughout. Maturation on lees has conferred a malty, creamy texture with subtle characters of creme caramel at the back. The tight core of fresh fruit gives depth and a lingering finish to this finely crafted wine.
Round, with pear and pepper flavors, echoing softly. Drink now.
Light and brisk up front, this chardonnay builds to a plump, soft finish. A savory-sweet Aussie, chill this leesy white for aperitifs.
Ripe and generous, this remains light on its feet as the lime-accented pineapple and cream flavors flow. Drink now.
Soft, easy, tropical and sweet from beginning to end. This is just the no-brainer that people who want an inexpensive Aussie Chard are looking for. A good quaff.
Fresh and appealing for its pear and black pepper aromatics and lively structure. Drink now through 2010.
