Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2016
"Quite a blend. Complex and well balanced. Chalky crunch and life. Long and a very obvious step up from the other two Chardonnays. Light grip and hint of phenolic bitterness on the end." 17/20 Jancis Robinson
"Gently toasted almond and subtle pencil shavings give some indication of the 35% new French oak that was used to age the 2016 Chardonnay Yattarna. Ripe peach, pear and melon fruit fills out the medium to full-bodied palate, then really grows in intensity and focus on the long finish. This is the most complete Yattarna I've ever tasted, blending richness and acidity in a seamless fashion. It's a blend of fruit from Tasmania (51%), Henty (23%), Adelaide Hills (14%) and Tumbarumba (12%)." 96/100 Joe Czerwinski The Wine Advocate
Launched in 1998 with the 1995 vintage, Yattarna is the result of one of the most comprehensive, focused and highly publicised wine development projects ever conducted in Australia. The aspiration and independence of mind across generations of Penfolds winemakers inspired the winery to embark on a program to create a white wine that stands alongside Grange. Selectively sourcing only the very best Chardonnay fruit from cool-climate regions, coupled with sensitive winemaking, the style continues to evolve.
