Penfolds 2008 Yattarna Chardonnay 750mL
An elegant white gold colour with a hue of green. Complex aromas of lemon, citrus, cashew, cinnamon spice and spring flowers await patiently, ready to unfurl more naturally with time in a bottle, or pehaps to be coaxed with a decant. Peach, fig and creamy custard apple mingle together on the palate. A very long finish on a beautiful Chardonnay that could age for up to a decade.
Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay is the result of one of the most comprehensive, focussed and highly publicised wine development projects ever conducted in Australia. The aspiration and independence of mind across generations of Penfolds winemaking inspired the winery to embark on a program to create a white wine that could one day rival the standards of Penfolds Grange.
"Yattarna means little-by-little and is redefining modern Australian Chardonnay. The Bin number that appears on the label, 144, subtly points to the fac that 144 trial wines were made during Yattarna Chardonnay's developmental phase."
