World Wine – There is self-assured confidence to this vintage of Tiers. It’s not all bells and whistles right now, with greater restraint than the 1.5M, more Puligny than Meursault. But what it is already showing is outstanding complexity with melon, citrus, florals sitting well matched to beautifully integrated oak, plus a touch of praline in the mix. There is a tightness to the palate but also a delicious fruit delicacy and lightness of touch well matched to its creamy texture and all beautifully balanced with bright acidity before a long, chalky finish. Perfectly pitched, this is a great vintage of Tiers, if not one of the greatest. Angus Hughson (Wine Pilot) - 97 points


Decanter – Pale colour. Intense fresh grapefruit, lime, tonic water aromas with vanilla nougat notes. Fresh and creamy textured with grapefruit, lime, bitter lemon, stone fruit flavours, fine loose knit chalky, hint of al dente textures, lovely mid palate viscosity and bell-clear acidity. A resonating finish, highlighting pure fruits and persistent mineral length. Drinking well now, but best to keep for a while to allow the elements to fold. Andrew Caillard MW (The Vintage Journal) - 97 points

About This Wine

The Tiers Vineyard is a time proven “distinguished site”. In 1979, it was the first vineyard planted in the modern Adelaide Hills wine region, thus pioneering the ultra cool climate wine industry of South Australia. The Tiers Vineyard is in the Piccadilly Valley, the wettest and the second coolest site in South Australia. Only Parawa on the Fleurieu Peninsula is marginally cooler.

The Piccadilly Valley is well suited to Chardonnay, being an almost perfect homo-clime of Burgundy. The soil under the Tiers Vineyard is unique in the Adelaide Hills being based on the 1.6 million year old calcsilicate geological stratum lifted into place by a fault at the edge of The Tiers Vineyard. The rest of the Adelaide Hills has geological strata 500 to 800 million years old.

The Tiers Vineyard tilts gently to the North and East in a sheltered valley that receives the best advantage of the autumn sun in the northern sky to absorb the last rays of ripening energy at the cool end of harvest.

Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.

NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”

You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
