Wine of the Week AU

Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $39

It is the fruit intensity, energy and complexity in this wine that makes it such a pleasure to drink. Intense white nectarine and racy lemon flavours, plus a little sulfide complexity. Excellent palate weight and succulence. I enjoy the subtle note of grapefruit pith on the finish. A fantastic mix of generosity and freshness. (Screwcap)
