PENFOLDS YATTARNA CHARDONNAY 2020

$195.00

“There is a wonderful dichotomy between the complexity displayed on the nose and the absolute purity of fruit on the palate.”

A pale white gold light straw colour, the nose is pronounced with underlying citrus notes: grapefruit pith, lemon zest and granita. Toasted brioche, almond biscotti and cashew provide aromatic allure. There is a lovely chariness to the oak that is well-integrated into the fruit, that plays a supporting role rather than appearing to be an overtly dominant feature. Subtle hints of briny oyster shell and fresh sea spray reinforce the cool-climate fruit sourcing.

“There is a wonderful dichotomy between the complexity displayed on the nose and the absolute purity of fruit on the palate.”

A pale white gold light straw colour, the nose is pronounced with underlying citrus notes: grapefruit pith, lemon zest and granita. Toasted brioche, almond biscotti and cashew provide aromatic allure. There is a lovely chariness to the oak that is well-integrated into the fruit, that plays a supporting role rather than appearing to be an overtly dominant feature. Subtle hints of briny oyster shell and fresh sea spray reinforce the cool-climate fruit sourcing.

On the palate, at the core lies bright citrus fruits, with grapefruit and waxy lemon rind leading the way. There is a purity of fruit on the palate, very flavoursome, varietally correct. Mouth-watering acid provides a lingering finish. Creamy phenolics point to the perfect integration of fruit and high-quality French oak. Perhaps a more complex Yattarna upon release than in previous years. There is a wonderful dichotomy between the complexity displayed on the nose and the absolute purity of fruit on the palate. A very complete wine.

99 – Andrew Caillard, The Vintage Journal

 “… beautifully balanced wine with pure grapefruit, white peach flavours, fine al dente textures and superb mid-palate volume and underlying grilled nut… Finishes chalky and minerally with ample grapefruit notes. All the elements are in perfect balance. A wonderful Yattarna with superb fruit definition, complexity, richness and mineral length. Should last at least 20 years.”
