Tapanappa

South Australia | Adelaide Hills

James' Review

Tapanappa came home in many ways in 2015. It has the original Petaluma winery back, and a cellar door at the picturesque Tiers Vineyard. Equally importantly, it is now wholly owned by Brian and Ann Croser, albeit with the involvement of daughter and son-in-law Lucy and Xavier Bizot. The business as usual components are the Whalebone Vineyard at Wrattonbully (planted to cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot over 30 years ago), the Tiers Vineyard at Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills (chardonnay), and the Foggy Hill Vineyard on the southern tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula (pinot noir). Exports to the UK, France, Sweden, UAE, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.

About

Tapanappa was founded by the legendary Brian Croser in 2002. The word Tapanappa is probably derived from the local aboriginal language, and likely translates to “stick to the path”. This is exactly what Tapanappa is doing. Through Tapanappa, Brian is continuing a career-long mission of matching the climate, soil and geology of distinguished sites to the right varieties, and then fastidiously developing and managing the vineyards to optimise quality. Tapanappa is dedicated to producing unique “wines of terroir” from its three distinguished sites in South Australia out of its winery that is located in the heart of the Piccadilly Valley. The business components are the Whalebone Vineyard at Wrattonbully (planted to cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot over 30 years ago), the Tiers Vineyard at Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills (chardonnay), and the Foggy Hill Vineyard on the southern tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula (pinot noir). Exports to the UK, France, Sweden, UAE, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.
