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.

2015 Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay

Bright, light to medium yellow colour with a fresh, clean, bright bouquet of cashew nut, pear and creamy lees, with quite strong oak. The wine is full-bodied and rich, deep and intense, with amplitude and balance, a trace of grip nicely handled. It's a fuller style of chardonnay if not especially detailed in flavour or aroma at this time. The oak is assertive and needs time to mellow. Very good, and it will build further complexity with time.

2015 Tiers Vineyard 1.5m Chardonnay

A new member of the Tapanappa chardonnay family, from the 2003 Tiers plantings at 1.5m spacing, producing an earlier ripening, softer and more generous style. The result is delightfully fragrant, packed with white peach and lemon fruit of impressive concentration, defining a well-rounded and juicy palate, yet beautifully honed with finely mineral acidity and finely structured mouth feel.

94 points.

2015 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay

Striking an exacting balance between complexity and depth tang and refreshing elegance, this is a chardonnay that sings the virtues of vineyards around the Piccadilly Valley in fragrant white peach and lemon tones. It's tangy, persistent, finely- textured and delicious.

“very refined” - 2015 Tiers 1.5m Chardonnay

A very refined, fruit-driven, almost Chablis-like style. Stony nuances just add to that perception. Lees, subtle oak, and some buttery touches contribute to a complex wine. Restrained intensity, and it responds well to airing.

“flinty precision as farewell” - 2015 Tiers 1.5M Chardonnay

Stonefruit, white flowers, almond meal, almost a mint perfume, and fine spicy oak. Medium bodied, ripe fruit, but with citrus and firm flinty texture as a foil, almond gloss, intensity, and a huge push through the finish with ripe lemon and biscuitty flavour, and that flinty precision as farewell. You could decant if drinking now, though I’ say it needs time in bottle more than anything.

Of three fine Tapanappa chardonnay iterations, ranging from $39 to $79, this comes from a small close-spaced section, clonally selected – we’re getting into deeply serious wine craft here – where the result is distinctively different, its white stone fruit flavours concentrated, acidity tight, and the mouthfeel superfine. Impressive.
