External Reviews for Penfolds Rawson's Retreat Chardonnay
Supple and youthful apple-pear fruit emerges from scents of caramel and minerals. This is a round and easy chardonnay to pour with trout amandine.
This Chardonnay from Penfolds has enormous flavors of melon and fig on the palate. The finish is mild and has hints of oak, making it a great match for a wide variety of foods such as seafood and chicken.
Round and ripe, generous with its pear and spice flavors, echoing nicely on the soft finish. Drink now.
