Description

In recent years the fruit for Yattarna has largely come from cooler climate regions/vineyard sites with a sizable portion generally from Tasmania. The fruit for this 2018 release is from Tasmania, Tumbarumba and the Adelaide Hills. This has resulted in Yattarna ever increasingly becoming finer in style tasting of the fullness of a Corton Charlemagne coupled with the minerally edge of Grand Cru Chablis. Judiciously fermented and aged in French barriques (60% new) for 8-months, the oak is fully subsumed into the wine.

Smells

Stone/citrus fruits with nougat, roasted nuts and a subtle aroma of struck match.

Tastes

A delicious edginess to the palate is provided by the mineral and acid backbone. Subtly rich stone fruit is threaded with nougat/nut complexities in a finely creamed texture and a fine, steely citrus injection to the finish personifies the wines structure and obvious ability to age. Sealed by screw cap, you can reasonably expect this Grand Cru quality Yattarna to cellar through the 20-year mark if stored in quality cellar conditions.
