Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
96/100
Bright, medium to light yellow colour and it has a lovely nougat, toasted almond and toasted cashew bouquet, while the palate is intense and refreshingly crisp, with concentrated lemon and citrus fruit and tremendous refinement. The wine is superbly intense and sustained, the flavours lingering long after the wine has gone. It’s tight and needs more time to realise its full potential.

Tiers Vineyard 1.5m Chardonnay 2016
93/100
Medium to light yellow colour, the bouquet toasty, smoky and roasted-hazelnutty. The palate is likewise very nutty and savoury, dry and quite strongly oak-touched, the aftertaste lingering long with a quite drying oak presence. There’s a complexing touch of funky low-level sulfide, too.

Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2016
93/100
Bright, medium yellow colour with a toasted nut, slightly oak-driven bouquet. The wine is satisfyingly rich and concentrated in the mouth, with toasted nut and lemon citrus flavours galore, backed by judicious, stylish oak. It finishes with a twist of bitterness, which doesn’t mar it. Very good intensity and drive.

Cellar Door opens daily, 11am – 4pm
