Wine Pick of the week

Author: Patrick Haddock
Review Date: Jun 2010

If you’ve got a special occasion coming up you’d want a wine like this. If you haven’t, buy it anyway and put it in the cellar as the legendary Brian Croser is responsible.

This is a grand wine with its head nodding towards the aristocratic wines of France but its heart is distinctively Australian. There’s lifted blackcurrant fruit on the nose with violets, spice and a whiff of meaty jus. The palate is wonderfully soft with a black fruit core, notes of cedar and leather ending with great length and persistence. A wine with a sense of place and that place is in my cellar!

Try with Lamb studded with garlic and rosemary and a rich meat reduction

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