2018 Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay

Author: Andrew Graham
Source: Oz Wine Review
Review Date: Sep 2020

While not quite of the same calibre as the exceptional Tiers, this Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2018 is another solid Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. Tight and citrussy lemon butter style, the palate very much driven by tangy grapefruit and less about oak richness. For mine it’s a bit disjointed, the fruit lean and citrussy and the palate feels like it’s reaching for richness to balance out the tart grapefruit. Still, it’s very long, which all points to quality fruit at the core. You just need to drink it next year [2021].

Best drinking: As above. 17.5/20, 91/100. 13.7%, ($39)

Cellar Door opens daily, 11am – 4pm
