    Good wine takes time, and nobody knows that better than the dudes at Penfolds. Penfolds Bin 144 Yattarna Chardonnay is almost undoubtedly one of the finest Australian Chardonnays money can buy!

    First launched in 1998 with the 1995 vintage and taking its name from the Aboriginal word which translates as “little by little, gradually“. Using fruit from Tasmania, Henty, Adelaide Hills and Tumbarumba regions all contributed grapes and barrel aged in 35% new French oak for eight months, no expense is spared in crafting this world class Chardy!

    And it’s received the reviews you’d expect from a wine of this class…

    96/100 & Top Rank (Huon Hooke, The Real Review)
    The palate is rich and concentrated, velvet-smooth and fleshy with great depth and extract. Tremendously long carry. A brilliantly balanced, powerful wine, which is just starting out on its career and will undoubtedly reward cellaring and show much more character and complexity in a few years. Great potential.

    95/100 (James Halliday’s Wine Companion)
    “Opens with a subtle play of Granny Smith apple, grapefruit, barrel ferment and acidity, none blurring the crystal line of purity. A distinctive style, remarkable for its consistency.”

    A seriously classy wine with massive cellaring potential – drink now to 2033.
