93/100
It’s a tight and firmish wine with slightly grippy, chalky tannins. Notes of spice and sour cherry.

“Purity” - 2015 Eden Valley Riesling

The first Tapanappa wine made from a vineyard that it doesn't own, from 50yo vines. Purity is its long suit on the bouquet and palate alike, with lemon/lime/Granny Smith apple the suite of aromas and flavours. It is developing slowly, and still needs time.

“delightfully ripe” - 2016 Piccadilly Chardonnay

★★★★☆
One of three “Tapa” outings from Brian Croser’s Piccadilly vineyard and from one of the warmest years he’s ever seen (though without heatwave spikes). This wine is delightfully ripe in its stone fruit spectrum, with a roasted/grilled peach note and associated charry senses lifting from the glass as well, adding depth but neatly balanced by a refreshing acidity, offering palate tension and savoury, textural finishing length.

The only negative about this beautiful Chardonnay is that Brian Croser only bottles 500 dozen. It sits at $79 a bottle but if you are into the best of the best get on the Tapanappa website today.

“just a baby” - 2016 Foggy Hill Pinot Noir

This has a lovely red-cherry and cherry-liqueur like bouquet laced with spices and some subtle foresty characters - possibly whole-bunch derived. It's showing considerable complexity already. The wine is full in the mouth and quite firm, with abundant youthful tannins. It's just a baby and needs more time to soften and mellow out. An excellent pinot.

“Love this vineyard's wines” - 2016 Foggy Hill Pinot

Love this vineyard's wines and here is another great reason for you to get on board with them. A deeper coloured pinot reflecting more powerful red fruit flavours than you will discover in many pinots.

“a pleasure to drink” - 2016 Foggy Hill Pinot Noir

The beguilingly perfumed nose, suggestive of dark cherry and dried herbs, is captivating, and shows a whiff of oak. This supple, intense wine is a pleasure to drink, although the fine tannins provide the framework for cellaring. ★★★★☆

Top 10 Wines under $80- Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2015
Drink 2017-2025 | 96 points
The first vineyard planted in the modern era of the Adelaide Hills remains one of the greatest, producing chardonnay of profound generosity, exactingly honed with focused acidity and finely structured, mineral texture. In length, line and sheer, undeviating preci- sion, this is one of the greats.
