Yattarna is almost the antithesis of Grange as it is so tightly wound understated reserved and shy it is hard to believe they are relatives; the true depth and potential is revealed on the palate which is unevolved minerally layered and pure simply demanding time before appreciation can truly begin.

Intense wine with strong citrus/lemon grapefruit mineral toast bran biscuit and bread crust flavours. Complex powerful and slightly closed wine that needs time.

The style of Yattarna has evolved significantly since its first release into today's elegant medium bodied style that is very tight-knit in youth and built to age. The 2009 Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay is a multi-regional blend with about 47% of the fruit coming from Derwent Valley (Tasmania) 3% from the Adelaide Hills and the rest from Henty (Victoria) - all cooler climate areas. It was barrel-fermented and matured for nine months in French oak barriques 40% new and 60% 1 year. At this youthful stage it offers delicate aromas of ripe peaches green mango and under-ripe pineapple with hints of toasted almonds cedar crostini and baker's yeast. The medium bodied palate has a good core of mouth-filling stone fruit and toasty flavors with a beautiful silkiness to the texture and a long zesty finish that lends a lingering minerally / chalky character. Approachable now it should drink best 2013 to 2018+. 92+ -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Tangy focused spicy and refreshing with a line of acidity making the wine mouthwatering underneath flavors of lime grapefruit and green apple. Tightly wound this has the intensity to expand its flavor profile with cellaring. Drink now through 2021.-H.S.
