Colour: Light straw. Nose: Fresh and inviting - complexed by yeast lees-derived nougat and ground pistachio/almond/roasted chestnut. Scents of deconstructed crème brûlée '(flamed top and custardy middle), enhanced by ripe white nectarine and peach fruits. A liberal sprinkle of crushed rock/pebble dust (quartz, limestone?) certainly adds interest. Palate: A very lively palate of freshly sliced cucumber and lime citrus flavours hovering over a soft and succulent acid underpinning. A tight phenolic grip induces wonderful length and drive to the finish. A cool climate regional trio - three different chardonnay expressions of texture/acidity/tightness/purity coalesce, propelling combined fruits/flavours. A 'new Bin 311' is revealed. Nice.

Struck match, touches of toasted hazelnut and grilled peach and fresh lime notes give the 2017 Chardonnay Bin 311 ample complexity on the nose and palate. It's medium-bodied, with a touch of creaminess on the mid-palate and a long, silky finish. New for this year, it's a blend of fruit from the Adelaide Hills (56%), Tasmania (27%) and Tumbarumba (17%), so in the United States, it carries the inauspicious GI of South Eastern Australia. Don't be misled by that, as it's a serious, classy wine for a very reasonable price.

The latest vintage of this wine has moved from single region sourced (Tumbarumba) to multi-regional (Adelaide Hills, Tasmania and Tumbarumba). This is still a bright, medium-bodied, slippery-textured Chard offering notes of lemon curd, pear, honeysuckle, florals and toasty wood. Drink now-2023.

Tangy citrus and peach flavors are straightforward and compact in this white, with a juicy frame and a touch of butterscotch detail. Drink now. 798 cases imported.
