Wine of the Week AU

Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $79

Wines like this put the Australian wine industry on the world stage. It presents as a harmonious chardonnay, yet closer attention reveals an intricate mosaic of flavours and textures. Lemon curd, faint oatmeal, hints of roasted nuts and an intense grapefruity core. Its balance allows it to be enjoyed on its own, though its complexity makes it an ultimate partner to the finest of foods. (Screwcap)
