Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  558643

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%). Drink Date: 2019-2030. Score - 96. (Joe Czerwinski,, Oct. 4, 2018)
