“This hits the precipice of elegant and fine Australian Chardonnay”  – Marc Malouf | Wine Worth Writing About – Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2023

Review Date: Feb 2024

Pale gold with cyan reflections and a tight, but beautifully nuanced nose of orange and apple blossom, white peach, pear, apple, lemon, finger-lime, sugarmelon, dried galangal, cashew and honey nougat, fennel, a touch of spearmint, ocean salinity and a hint of flint. A bit ester-y, but not overt. In the mouth it’s like a sleeping Buddha. Zen, calm, harmonious but incredibly powerful and though tightly bound in youth, it boasts balance and symmetry. Pulsing apples, pear, fennel, grapefruit, melon and multidimensional stonefruit gripped with fine confident tannins and tense driving acidity. It flows like a river, endless and hypnotic, textured like the smooth stony bed itself and ends on a crescendo of slightly bitter nectarine and sharp citrus-like acidity. So much potential and as always, this hits the precipice of elegant and fine Australian Chardonnay. One to hold in the cellar for many years.

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
