Tiers 1.5M Chardonnay stands alongside its older sibling, the 2022 Tiers Old Block, as an equal but with the subtle differences of its close spaced, French clone, earlier ripening habit. Both wines are truly outstanding vintage examples of the Tiers special terroir
Brian Croser was one of the first Australian winemakers of the modern era to deliberately match grape variety to site. He is adamant that terroir defines fine wine, and that the best way to achieve terroir is to be light-handed in your viticultural approach. All efforts should be concentrated in the vineyards so the correct chemistry and ﬂavour balance on the vines can be achieved.
