This year's Yattarna was sourced from Tasmania (89%) and the Adelaide Hills and was aged for nine months in French barriques 49% of them new. Pale straw in color moderately intense aromas of barely ripe pear nectarine and peach pit easily lift from the glass. This medium-weighted release is vibrant with great power and purity of fruit. Clean and polished the flavors of pear and Fuji apple are beautifully integrated into a plush finish that fans out and lingers. A pure expression of chardonnay with out any statement of oak the Tasmanian fruit is the key offering a harmonious wine that while approachable now will cellar well for the next 4-8 years. Tasted in magnum.
