Launched in 1998 with the 1995 vintage, Penfolds YattarnaChardonnay was the result of one of the most comprehensive andhighly publicised wine development programs ever conducted inAustralia.The aspiration and independence of mind that the late MaxSchubert brought to Penfolds winemaking philosophy inspiredthe winery to embark on the project of creating a white wine thatwould one day rival the standards of Penfolds Grange.Yattarna reflects Penfolds patience and continued commitment tothis goal, its very name being drawn from the Aboriginal, meaning'little by little, gradually'. Each vintage provides the opportunityto further raise the quality horizon.
