AUSTRALIA-S 100 GREAT WHITES FOR SUMMER SIPPING

93 Points - #1 Rated Wine

The top rated wine in the report, the 2006 Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay from Tapanappa comes from Adelaide Hills, the Piccadilly Valley. The Tiers vineyard site was planted by Brian Croser back in 1978 when he founded Petaluma Winery, and so represents some very old ? by Australian standards ? Chardonnay vines, although newer plantings include Dijon clones.

This is a plump, amply textured wine. Scents and flavors of toasted grain with white peaches and hazelnuts. Long and intense on the finish, echoing with toasty oak but also layers of vibrant fruit.
