About

The ‘Tiers Vineyard’ is the oldest block of Chardonnay planted in the Adelaide Hills, established in 1979.

In 2003, Brian Crozer opted to replant a section of the vineyard to Burgundian Chardonnay clones. The vines spaced only 1.5m apart have yielded intense fruit from early in their life.

“This unique section of The Tiers Vineyard produces earlier ripening, fuller flavoured Chardonnay than the 1979 old vine,” say Crozer. They yeild a wine of high impact, full figure and razor-sharp acidity.

This is a powerful Chardonnay that commands attention.

What It Tastes Like

“Stonefruit, white flowers, almond meal, almost a mint perfume, and fine spicy oak. Medium bodied, ripe fruit, but with citrus and firm flinty texture as a foil, almond gloss, intensity, and a huge push through the finish with ripe lemon and biscuitty flavour, and that flinty precision as farewell. You could decant if drinking now, though I’ say it needs time in bottle more than anything.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
