This, the third tier if you’ll excuse the pun, of the Tapanappa Chardies, is sourced from the Piccadilly Valley, more specifically an equal divide between the Mount Bonython and Pat and Ted’s vineyards. 2022 was another cooler vintage. The fruit was pressed and pumped to tank and then French oak barriques, a 1/3rd new, for fermentation and then aged on lees till September, 2022. A limpid green/gold. Quite a pungent and lifted nose with stonefruit, minerals, apricot and a hint of oatmeal. Good intensity, which lasts right through to the long finish well matched to bright acidity. An impressive Chardonnay which should drink very well for the next five to eight years.
