Description2018 Penfolds Chardonnay Max’s Oak is present in this 2018 vintage but in balance and offering a nutty/ nougat nuance. Fresh flavors of stone fruit, citrus, and grapefruit pith. Creamy, crème brulee-like French oak lingers with a lovely flinty, wet stone/chalky acid line, closing out with an intriguing waxy phenolic finish.
Light straw in color. Subtle stone fruits, yellow peach, nectarine, and faint wafts of citrus are foremost. Upon further swirling, hints of floral notes shine through, Jasmine and white rose petal perfume and a touch of ginger spice.
