Bright green-yellow; a wine born of Brian Croser's long experience with the Piccadilly Valley and chardonnay; white peach and melon fruit is interwoven with finely judged oak, the mlf handled expertly.

"Smoky nose. [...] Still quite youthful but you can see where it is headed. Pretty chewy for the moment but nice savour. Really succulent."

"Quite a rich array of aromas on the nose – not a burgundy copy but something very interesting and valid. Dry finish. A hint of iron filings on the finish but it really goes on in the mouth. Well done!"

Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2010

2010 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay - of substance and power

This is the younger sibling of the Tiers Vineyard release. It’s grown on the same chardonnay vineyard, though the vines this was grown on were planted in 2001. i.e. much younger vines. This 2010 release has been in the market for at least 12 months, if not 24, but it’s the first time I’ve tasted it. It’s at a good stage of its life now.

Spicy, sawdusty, almost coconutty oak has largely sunk down into the fruit – though it’s still evident, still leaves its sexy trail. I reckon I could go this wine. White peach, nectarine, grapefruit. A wine of substance and power. Not over-wrought. Juicy finish. Essence of chardonnay, in the fuller style. It will improve too.

2010 Tiers Chardonnay - 95 points, a whole new level

Some will say that it could do without all the oak. And it probably could. Then again, that would make it a completely different wine…

Textured and toasty, powerful and structured. Grapefruit, melon and yellow peach with a wicked mineral streak and savoury lees action kicking in on the midpalate. Almonds and spice as well. It’s the length that lifts it to a whole new level. Just goes on and on. I’m happy to see this style executed with such class.

95 Excellent

Tiers 2010 Chardonnay - 95 points

Long, tightly focused and already very complex, with a waxy, creamy bouquet of grapefruit, melon and fresh vanilla oak backed by nuances of ginger and butterscotch. Underpinned by waxy and nutty complexity, its evenly ripened, juicy presence of melon and grapefruit are deftly knit with creamy malolactic influences, a savoury minerality and suggestions of smoked meats. It finishes with brightness, tightness and a lingering core of pristine fruit.

2010 Tiers Chardonnay - lovely length and power

This is a forthright and concentrated style of chardonnay, with plenty of sweet oak layered into the mix of yellow stone fruit aromas, some creamy nougat complexity too. The palate delivers restarined fruit that has been lavished with rich, sweet, cedary oak, lovely length and power, taut texture too. Less oak would suffice here.

Earlier in the week, I hurriedly tasted the current releases of Tapanappa's three single vineyard wines. All are worthy and exciting but I was especially drawn to this one. I have been looking forward to spending a bit more quality time with it.

A very fine, taught wine that needs coaxing but, like a good Cote de Beaune, builds characters the longer it's in the glass. Profound, subtly powerful, with a haunting perfume of flowers, spices and citrus fruit.
