Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay 2022

Another "near perfect" vintage remarks Brian Croser in the notes accompanying the release. Slightly warmer than 2021, but like that vintage it's considered spot on - compared to the run of warmer years in the decade from around the 2010s.

Exquisite oak on presentation here, nougat and seasoning, a drizzle of honey, framing the introduction to the wine.

There's an intensity to the wine on initial intro, grapefruity acidity that positively threads through the palate. Texture fills the cavity adding breadth to the exquisite length. Hints of lime, grapefruit add up to this excellent release. 95
