Penfolds Bin 144 Yattarna Chardonnay

Yattarna’s trajectory toward graceful refinement has hit new heights of laser line, crystalline structure and pristine grace in 2012. Gorgeous fragrance of grapefruit blossom, white peach and lemon, projecting a delicacy and grace particularly noteworthy for Yattarna. The palate is impeccably fine and elegant, with delicately placed layers of fragrant white fruits positioned on a beautiful surface of finely honed acidity and fine mineral texture. In time, subtle almond blossom, peach kernel and crunchy grapefruit nuances emerge. Line and length are unrelenting, promising a breathtaking future. This eminently reserved and tightly-coiled Yattarna represents one of the best ever. A blend of Tasmania (Derwent and Coal Valleys), Henty and Adelaide Hills, aged for 8 months in 45% new French oak barrels.
