Tapanappa Tiers 1.5M Chardonnay 2021
Cool climate wines from South Australian world class terroirs, made by legendary winemaker Brian Croser. The 2021 Tiers 1.5M is a delicate green-yellow colour, very similar to its older vine sibling. The aroma is restrained, more of white peach than nectarine and with the slight brioche and cinnamon-vanilla complexity of the yeast and oak. The flavour is intense and very fruit ripe and fresh. The aroma is dominated by the intensity of the Chardonnay fruit. The flavour is intense but refined reflecting the aroma with exceptional fruit sweetness and length of flavour. The trade-mark Tiers texture is offset by the acid and grapefruit finishing cut of the Tiers Vineyard.
