"Slippery-smooth and racy with acidity" - 2017 Tiers Vineyard 1.5m Chardonnay

From a section of vineyard re-planted to Bernard clones in 2003. The vines are planted 1.5 x 1.5 metres apart, hence the name. Straw-yellow in colour. It’s both slippery-smooth and racy with acidity. Indeed acidity is a keen player here, though it comes strung with white peach, cedarwood and grapefruit flavours. It feels elegant, it feels fine-fingered, it feels svelte and it feels in need of time. It’s on its way to a very good place; I hovered score-wise around 93-94 but after giving it time it fell firmly on the higher side.
