Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard 2005 Chardonnay

Author: Tom Cannavan

Review Date: Jun 2010

The concept of Tapanappa is to make ultra-premium, terroir-specific wines from their South Australian vineyards. Tiers vineyard was selected for the Chardonnay because it “mirrors the southern end of the Cotes de Beaune, where the great Montrachets are grown.” The wine pours a very delicate gold colour, with a gorgeous nose of very high quality French oak, giving notes of honey, toasted almonds and sesame seeds, and fine, racy orchard fruits. The palate has a lightly creamy, oatmeally quality and medium body, with a deliciously crisp lemon acidity immediately adding cut and edge to quite full, sweet fruit. There’s an orange fruit brightness, and just a perception of more luscious, tropical tones. The wine stays quite crisp and racy through to the finish, with lovely succulence and balance. Very impressive stuff this.
