Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2008

This is the first time I have tried a Tapanappa wine. Though its spelling appears to present a unique challenge, their 2008 chardonnay was really quite a surprise. Tasted blind, it had an aroma of stone fruit, sweet peaches and a floral element. On the palate, almost uniquely in my experience with Australian chardonnay, it was incredibly delicate and floral. A very interesting wine. 85 to 86 points.

I had this wine last week as well and was impressed. While I found it delicate, I also experienced a long and lasting finish. Quite French.
