Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2008 – 94/100

Author: Tom Cannavan
Review Date: Jun 2010

The Tiers vineyard was planted in Piccadilly by Brian Croser in 1979. This 2008 vintage was was a particularly hot one, but perhaps because the wine was picked early, it has retained a really vibrant edge. The earliest releases where also very heavily – and for me overly – oaked, but despite being one of the world’s most experienced winemakers, Croser is clearly able to adapt and the oak on this sits beautifully, restrained and gently cashew-like, allowing the pristine fruit quality to shine. The wine is immensely concentrated and intense, but shimmers with life. Clearly the best Tiers Chardonnay yet, with wonderful balance and a long, long finish. 94/100.
