2021 Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley ChardonnayRegular price $43.00
"The 2021 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay is quite aromatically shy and restrained although the flavours are intense and the texture significant. The colour is lemon with a green sheen. The aroma is of ripe golden almost mushy peach with a croissant pastry complexity imparted by yeast and French oak. The flavour is full, ripe and sweet with a savoury acid and grapefruit finish." - Brian Croser
"Showing perfectly ripe fruit and superb precision.
Pale colour. Attractive white peach, apricot, nectarine, grapefruit aromas with tonic water notes. Creamy textured and buoyant with abundant stonefruit, grapefruit flavours, fine slinky/ al dente textures, underlying nougat, hint aniseed notes and fresh long acidity. A very expressive chardonnay showing perfectly ripe fruit and superb precision. An earlier drinking style but should keep for a while."

"If you’re into statistics, and detailed weather information, then Brian Croser is the man for you. Being English, and specifically Northern English, anyone who knows me well will know that weather observation is a wonderful source of interest for me.
Classic Hills Chardonnay, is probably a good way to describe it. It has flavour and fruit, and an underlying savoury character. Cashew and peach, aniseed, cinnamon and cedar oak, ripe grapefruity acidity, a little chalkiness to texture, and a nutty juicy peach and spiced pear flavour carrying on long clean finish. So excellent."
