Launched in 1998 with the 1995 vintage, Yattarna 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 ambition to create a white wine that would set the standard for ultra-fine Australian chardonnay. In all, there were 144 trial wines made before Yattarna was eventually launched. The allotment of “Bin 144” acknowledges this pioneering winemaking. By selectively sourcing only the finest chardonnay grapes from cool climate regions, Yattarna reflects Penfolds continued commitment to our original goal, to forge a white wine of exceptional quality. The very name “Yattarna” being drawn from an indigenous language, meaning ‘little by little, gradually’. Each new vintage invites the opportunity to further expand the boundaries of winemaking innovation, grape sourcing and our understanding of this noble varietal.

Wine Style

White - rich, mouth filling, full-bodied


What the aromatics promise, the palate delivers. There is a level of complexity evident that places this vintage of Yattarna among the finest ever made. Citrus to the fore, with pink grapefruit leading the charge, ably backed up by lemon curd. Textually very fine indeed, with a crème brûlée like richness/flavour holding court. There are flavours of just-roasted hazelnuts and salted cashews. Fresh nougat makes a cameo appearance, embedded with pistachio nuts and wrapped in glutinous rice paper. Black sesame paste baked in a Japanese milk bun. The finish is very long, the core of fruit goes on and on, braced by beautifully composed acidity.
