Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay 2016

The Tiers vineyard is an impressive sight to behold as you stand looking at it with the winery behind you. It's gently rising slope gives away little from afar as to the history and pedigree of the site. 

The pedigree is evident in the glass. From the off there's an immaculate and harmonious presentation of spiced oak over peach and cream. The tastiness is just so, sensuous and opulent. 

The representation on the palate is more of the same, carefully crafted layers that sit with each other: oak, fruit, acid - all tuned. There's still a coming together and you'd probably be cautious in suggesting a ten year drinking window.

The fact it's good to go now only enhances its appeal, it's certainly in the Champions League of Australian Chardonnay 96
