"Bright, fresh ruby grapefruit and pear flavors leap out of the glass, with a hint of mandarin orange and a succulent frame. White floral details linger on the finish. Drink now. 1,017 cases imported. -MW" (WS)

"This moves into refined and very striking style with a wealth of lemons, white peaches and nectarines on offer, as well as nicely curated hazelnut-oak. The smoothly honed palate has deep-set peach flavors and a succulent, cool-mineral and grapefruit finish. The finest Bin 311 to date." (JS)

"Bottled under screwcap, the 2018 Chardonnay Bin 311 comes all from cool climate sites in southeastern Australia and was brought up in French oak. Its light gold hue is followed by a racy perfume of stone fruits, crushed citrus, white flowers, and salty minerality. With plenty of richness, medium body, and nicely integrated acidity, this rock-solid Chardonnay is drinking great today yet has the class and balance to evolve for 4-6 years or more. It’s an impressive Chardonnay." (JD)

"This now-multiregional Chardonnay blend from wine giant Penfolds is a pretty, fruity number with both the polish associated with this brand and upfront appeal. Waxed apple, peach and lime aromas kick things off. There's a fringe of salt, like the rim of a margarita glass. Laser-like acidity slices through the highly textural palate, leading once again to a long, salty finish. Drink now–2028. Christina Pickard" (WE)
