Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2016

All stonefruit, supplemented - bolstered even - with a small portion of new (33%) oak. Wheaten and mealy, has the lovely golden suggestion of the setting sun. 

Feels fleshy, almost chewy on entry. Not quite plump, rounded - not chiselled. That occurs elsewhere in the portfolio. Solid, some might say. 

Balanced, nothing over the top, flavoursome to the very end - where a flash of citrussy acidity is actually quite welcome. 92
