Wines of the Week – 2007 Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay

Author: Joanna Simon

Review Date: Jun 2010

First-class chardonnay from the Piccadilly Valley in South Australia ? as good a demonstration as there is of the quality being achieved in some of the vineyards in Australia chosen for their combination of cool climate and suitable soils. This has white-peach and citrus flavours, a nuttiness that comes from both the chardonnay and the French oak barriques (used for fermentation and ageing) and a beautifully polished, creamy texture. It’s elegant, fascinating and can only become more complex. I expect it to become richer, nuttier, less lemony, more honeyed, but also more savoury. If you keep it until 2017, it may look quite cheap, too.

Cellar Door opens daily, 11am – 4pm
