"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.


 

Lemon yellow in colour, 2018 Tiers Chardonnay has ripe and fresh fruit aromas and flavours of peach and fig. The subtle complexity of oak vanilla and toast and the brioche of yeast lees complements the fresh fruit. The hallmark Tiers Chardonnay texture is followed by a long after taste with a slight savoury quince finish.'
