Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 1995
From the outstanding 1995 vintage and scoring 87/100 Parker points, "The luxury-priced 1995 Chardonnay Yattarna (an Aborigine word meaning "little by little - gradually") is meant to be the finest white wine in Penfolds' portfolio...The light gold color is followed by excellent honeyed citrus/buttery flavors, searing acidity, medium to full body, and a short finish, much of it induced by the extremely high acidity."

Launched in 1998 with the 1995 vintage, Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 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 winery to embark on a program to create a white wine that stands alongside the standards of Penfolds Grange. Selectively sourcing only the very best Chardonnay fruit from cool-climate regions, coupled with sensitive and enlightened winemaking, the style continues to evolve. Yattarna reflects Penfolds patience and continued commitment to its original goal, its very name being drawn from the Aboriginal language, meaning ‘little by little, gradually.’
