2008 Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay
Brian Croser lives alongside the superb Tiers vineyard in the Adelaide Hills and coaxes one of the country’s finest chardonnays from its 30-year-old vines. This has restraint and fruit purity, wonderful texture and bright, refreshing acidity.
2009 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir
From a mild, dry growing season in Southern Fleurieu Peninsula in SA comes this brooding, age-worthy pinot that is tight, fine and showing power, restrained dark-cherry and raspberry-pith flavours.
2006 Tapanappa Whalebone Cabernet Shiraz
Low-yielding mature vines on the Whalebone vineyard at Wrattonbully in the southeast of SA show just how elegant this cab shiraz blend can be, especially when it has 10 percent cabernet franc added to the mix. There’s soft plushness, impeccable balance and finese.
