Penfolds is Australia's oldest and most iconic winery with a history and legacy that reflects the country's journey from colonial settlement to the modern era. The winery was founded in 1844 by Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold who, together with his wife, emigrated from England to South Australia to plant his vines obtained from France at Magill Estate. The reason for this was not to make the best wine in Australia, but to find a cure for anemia. Christopher believed in the medicinal properties of wine and used this in his GP practice which was growing in reputation.

The Australian wine industry, and therefore Penfolds, changed dramatically with the arrival of winemaker Max Schubert who created world famous Grange and Bin wines. In 1988 Max Schubert was named 'Man of the year' by Decanter Magazine and Penfolds Grange 1955 is now listed as a national heritage site. Penfolds has an extraordinary collection of awards and with each generation of winemakers, Max Schubert's remarkable vision is nurtured and strengthened. Today, Peter Gago is the 'Guardian of the Grange' and sets the standard for all Penfolds wines. It was even named 'Most Admired Wine Brand' by Drinks International in early 2019 and many more awards are likely to follow

Yattarna is the result of one of the most extensive, focused and highly publicized wine development projects ever undertaken in Australia. The drive and independence of spirit of generations of Penfolds winemakers inspired the ambition to create a white wine that would set the standard for ultra-fine Australian chardonnay. The Penfolds Chardonnay South Australia Yattarna 2018 is a mix of Tasmania, Tumbarumba and Adelaide Hills fruit, so a real cool-climate Chafdonnay. This Penfolds Yattarna has an intense, stony and mineral freshness with a flint-like edge and a richness of lemon, white peaches and crushed stones in the nose. The flavor has such a striking and intense depth.
