The success of Penfolds has been driven by the generations of visionaries and innovators. From the beginning in 1844 to today, the merging of science, art and innovation has driven Penfolds to become one of Australia's most famed and respected winemakers.
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.

Rating: 95 Points by Robert Parker
Tasting Note: The largest proportion of fruit in the 2017 Yattarna Chardonnay comes from Tasmania (44%) , with the balance coming from Tumbarumba and Adelaide Hills. It's fine-boned and medium-bodied, with delicate citrus notes of lime, plus white peach and barely ripe pineapple. Clean, zesty and refreshing, it's a lean, racy rendering of Chardonnay, with a long, elegant finish. Despite 50% new French oak, the wood influence is scarcely to be found.
