“An Australian classic” – Tiers Chardonnay 2013

Author: Winsor Dobbin
Review Date: Apr 2015

Wine of the Week

If you are looking for a chardonnay with precision, purity and linearity you won’t go wrong with the delicious cool-climate chardonnay grown on a vineyard that veteran winemaker Brian Croser describes as producing fruit that provides “a pure expression of terroir”. The vineyard site is 450 metres above sea level at Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills and this is made entirely from the Tiers old vines planted in 1980. It shows no sign of 2013 having been a warmer than average year. French Vosges oak barriques (33% new) and partial malo play second fiddle to the quality fruit here; ripe stone fruit characters duel deftly with grapefruit and minerally acid notes to produce a wine that is refined and elegant. An Australian classic.
