DESCRIPTION

*Actual bottle may be different from the product image on website. Vintage/Year of the bottle is not guaranteed unless stated.

Penfolds the Icon, one of the most famed and respected wine producers in Australia.

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 ambition to create a white wine that would set a standard for ultra-fine Australian chardonnay.

TASTING NOTES

NOSE

A pedigreed stylistic first alert – subtle flint, more rock-flint than struck-match.

A mist of limey citrus, curry leaf and hints of white peach. Quite an exotic ascent... no need to coax from glass via a vigorous swirl.

Understated spoils of cool-climate, barrel-fermented chardonnay – a lovely waxiness, whiff of cashew, and subtle creaminess.

A Southern-Hemisphere reflection extolling Burgundian restraint, temperament.

FLAVOURS AND PALATE

At once, substantial flavour coupled with a textural dynamic; mouth-filling, engulfing – opens up aka mid-symphony, no instrument idle.

White stone fruits – just ripe nectarine and freshly-sliced peach, and the most subtle adornment of oak and zesty acidity.

A wonderful line struts across the mid-palate, not brazenly, yet with real purpose/destination and persistence.

Amplified innate potential; beautifully poised and defined.

More? Enough will not be enough.
