Tapanappa -Tiers- Vineyard Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2008

Author: Chris Shanahan
Review Date: Jun 2010

In 1978 Brian Croser released Petaluma Chardonnay 1977, a pioneering oak-fermented, oak-matured wine of striking quality. It came from warm Cowra and was the forerunner of later Petaluma vintages sourced from Croser’s vineyards in South Australia’s cool Piccadilly Valley. Over time ?Tiers?, the earliest of those Piccadilly vineyards, produced distinctive wines and ultimately became the flagship Petaluma chardonnay. Today the ?Tiers? vineyard remains in Croser family hands and contributes fruit to both Petaluma and Tapanappa. Tapanappa shows the ripe, peachy flavours of the warm year ? in a distinctive fresh, very fine style, incorporating the deep texture and flavour complexities of barrel fermentation and maturation.
