Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

96 POINTS - JAMES HALLIDAY!

"The chardonnay vines on the Tiers Vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley are all now well over 30 years old though some were planted in the late 1970s.

Dramatically concentrated but long and elegant. Essence of the variety. White peach and pear, chalk and honeysuckle, sweet cedarwood, toast. It all gathers and then soars through the finish. Top shelf chardonnay without a doubt." - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front

 

"The 38 year-old Tiers Vineyard has clearly confirmed its status as a “distinguished site” and the 2018 Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay “is a pure expression of a unique Australian terroir.”2018 Tiers Chardonnay is a warm vintage, ripe fruit expression of the Tiers unique terroir."  - Tapanappa

 

"The Tiers Vineyard was close-planted in '79 by the Croser family, the wine fermented in French barriques (33% new), bottled Mar '18. A complex, toasty bouquet is followed by an equally complex palate that has excellent grip and length, grapefruit pith and juice part of the message." - James Halliday, Mar 2020
