Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2018

Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2018

Coal River Valley, Tasmania   |    750ml   |    14%
Tolpuddle Vineyard in the Coal River Valley region of Southern Tasmania was established in 1988; taking its name from the Tolpuddle Martyrs; English convicts transported to Tasmania for forming an agricultural union. Martin Shaw, Michael Hill Smith MW and Matthew Hill Smith purchased the vineyard in 2011 with a vision of making Tolpuddle one of Australia's great single vineyards. The vineyard is planted with mature vines, the cool and dry climate ideal conditions for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of exceptional quality.

Tolpuddle are producing some of Australia's leading examples of these Burgundian varieties. Made in tiny quantities, Tolpuddle Chardonnay is highly sought after by lovers of premium Australian Chardonnay; this newly released 2018 Tolpuddle Chardonnay is again in fine form.

"98 Points An exceptional chardonnay with a wealth of very fresh and slightly flinty lemon, grapefruit, white-peach and grilled-hazelnut aromas. The palate has such grace and well-defined, pure lemon and grapefruit, as well as white and yellow peaches. The toasted-hazelnut afterglow is stunning. Hints of praline, too. So elegant, pristine and pure. Exceptional. Drink or hold." - James Sucking, jamessuckling.com, 28 June, 2019

VINTAGE NOTES:Mild conditions in spring saw nicely balanced shoot development leading up to flowering. Then some warmer weather in early summer meant that the vines were tracking slightly ahead compared to average. Slow and even ripening then followed, with dry conditions resulting in excellent flavour concentration.

PALATE: Fine and precise with firm acidity, and a combination of lightness of texture and intensity of flavour. The 2018 vintage has the natural acidity you would expect but is approachable, with flavour in the lemon citrus, lemon soda, lemon pith, spectrum.
