Riper honey and fig characters complement the typical Tiers Vineyard peach flavour and aroma and significant texture. The wine finishes with a grapefruit and quince nuance again typical of The Tiers Vineyard terroir expression.
The Tiers Vineyard was planted in 1979 with the OF Chardonnay clone, a Californian derived clone with its roots in the mists of 19th century Mersault. This clone known as FPS 02A disappeared from California because it was suspected of carrying leaf roll virus, despite recognition of its superior winemaking characteristics. It doesn't have leaf roll, we are lucky to have it, and it is ideally suited to the distinguished site of The Tiers Vineyard. In 2016 the vintage conditions allowed it to show its best qualities. The 2016 Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay ripened early and fully because of the very warm growing season. It was hand harvested, matured in French Vosges oak barriques, 33% new and the balance 1 and 2 use and was left on full lees in barrique until the summer when it was clear racked and prepared for bottling in mid March.
