Yattarna 2016 Yattarna 2016

ペンフォールズ・コレクション

ヤッターナ2016

1998年に1995年のヴィンテージが発表されたヤッターナは、オーストラリアで行われた最も大々的に報道され注目された総括的なワイン開発プロジェクトの成果です。向上心と独立心に溢れたペンフォールズの何世代にもわたるワインメーカーに触発され、ペンフォールズはグランジに匹敵する白ワインを造るプログラムを開始しました。冷涼な地域で収穫された最高のシャルドネ品種のブドウだけを選び、繊細なワイン製造技術を使用し、スタイルを発展させ続けています。

ヤッターナにはペンフォールズの忍耐と設定した目標にコミットメントし続ける姿勢が現れています。そして「ヤッターナ」という名前は、アボリジニの言語の「少しずつ、徐々に」という言葉からつけられました。ヴィンテージごとに、さらに品質レベルが上がるチャンスが生まれます。 

 

飲み頃
Taste Description

Colour
Pale straw with faint lime-green hues.

Nose
Stylish and classy – a lovely purity of expression with native fruits and hints of lemon zest, finger lime and crushed nasturtium leaf.
Such fruits appear to get a ‘free ride’ – courteously propelled by fine, integrated French oak … a barrel fermentation dividend?
Upon a swirl and a little air, subtle notes of crushed honeycomb and camomile arise.
Refined and classic. Right now, a touch on the closed side, certainly demanding a decant … and time.

Palate
An initial detection of peach and nectarine from the white stone fruit spectrum but the real feature of the palate is its poise and perfectly pitched (grippy) acidity.
The palate seems to just effortlessly glide linearly, retaining intent and purpose, yet structurally possessive of a velvet sheen that charms and disarms.
Supported by ultra fine cedary French oak. All tasted is both succulent and lingering, from the first sip to long after the last!
Not trying too hard; balanced, patient and relaxed. Rationalises the pursuit to source the ‘finest’ Chardonnay fruits accessible from anywhere in Australia. At any cost.

Winemaker Quotes

“Yattarna’s 21st Birthday! No doubt this important milestone release will sit comfortably alongside the memorable 2011 Yattarna.”

“Without wishing to sound pretentious – style and class, with presence. Makes a statement. Respectfully.”

“Not ready, needs to open up! A peruse of the drinking window may suggest it’s not quite ‘timeless’ but heading that way!”

- Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker

Vintage Conditions

Tasmania’s Derwent Valley experienced a dry winter followed by significant spring rain. Above average temperatures persisted through the growing season to harvest, encouraging vines to set a balanced crop with healthy canopies. An excellent vintage for both yield and quality in Tasmania. Henty in Victoria enjoyed good winter rainfall, with regular showers in spring. Conditions for the harvest were benign, favouring good yields and optimal ripeness.

The Adelaide Hills growing season was mild and dry. Conditions for fruit-set and flowering were favourable and contributed towards above average yields. Cool February conditions ensured ripening was steady and the slightly early start to vintage was a result of a mild and dry growing season. 2016 was a warm, relatively dry and early vintage for Tumbarumba, with harvest commencing 2 to 3 weeks early. Growing conditions were close to ideal, with good winter rains, a warm and clear spring and a rain free harvest.
