Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2011

Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2011

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker:
“Put simply – Yattarna is at the top of its game in vintage 2011. Patience will be rewarded!”


GRAPE VARIETY

Chardonnay

VINEYARD REGION

Tasmania, Adelaide Hills

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

Tasmania for the most part enjoyed very favourable growing conditions with very little frost incidence or disease – ensuring good crop levels and pristine fruit quality at harvest. A great vintage for Tasmanian Chardonnay! In the Adelaide Hills, the 2011 vintage was characterised by plentiful rains during spring taking dam capacities near to or 100% full. However lower than average temperatures and abundant rainfall during the growing season, veraison and harvest, produced a vintage that challenged both winemakers and viticulturists alike. A small parcel of exceptional Chardonnay was sourced from the Adelaide Hills to compliment the majority Tasmanian component in the 2011 blend.

COLOUR

Pale straw

NOSE

Key words here – restraint, purity. Demands a decant! With aeration, released aromas of pink grapefruit, lemony citrus and white peach are interwoven with stylish French oak nuances of graphite/pencil shaving. Shades of rock flint add intrigue to this impressively crafted wine – a wine requiring little persuasion to taste.

PALATE

A seamless, stylish, structure with all parts in harmony! Pink grapefruit, lemon curd, almond biscotti amidst refined chalky acid – invoking linearity and leading to a svelte and silken finish with remarkable length. Powerful, yet exhibiting finesse and grace! How will this vintage of Yattarna measure up to other stellar vintages? Your call, but don’t think too hard, just enjoy!
