Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard 1.5M Chardonnay

Region: Piccadilly Valley, Southern Australia

Vintage: 2019

Bottle size: 75cl

Grape: Chardonnay

ABV: 13%

A buttercup green-yellow colour, very similar to its older vine sibling. The aroma is more of white peach than nectarine and with the slight brioche and cinnamon-vanilla complexity of the yeast and oak. The flavour is intense and very fruit ripe and fresh. The aroma is dominated by the intensity of the Chardonnay fruit. The flavour is intense reflecting the aroma with exceptional length of flavour. The trade-mark Tiers fruit sweetness and texture is offset by the acid and grapefruit finishing cut of the Tiers Vineyard.

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.
