A very rare magnum of the exceptional 2021 Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay. This stunning wine shares the top spot, with Giaconda, for the best Chardonnay made in Australia and rivals the very best of Burgundy. Giaconda takes the bold powerhouse expression, while this is all about elegance, finesse and grace. This is made for the long haul and will reward those who have the control to hold

The colour is pale lemon green. The aroma is shy but intensely fresh, mainly of Chardonnay fruit, ripe nectarine with a hint of yeast cashew and oak spice. The aroma compels the need to taste, which amplifies the intensity and freshness but with refined fruit sweetness and texture. Finally, the cutting edge of acid and slight grapefruit finish of a wine has a finesse that is remarkable.

Creamy pale gold with a faint cyan reflection. Intense aromas of lemon blossom, verbena and white pepper are met with white stonefruit, charred lime, grapefruit, nashi pear, dried galangal and ocean spray. Gentle bacon, nougat and custard notes sit quietly behind it all. In the mouth it’s tightly packed and teases the palate with a creamy, citrus lined wave that drives long with confident flavours echoing the nose. Both seductive yet sharp with fresh acidity, crystalline minerality and tight phenolics that demand time and patience.
One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
