Awards, Reviews and other Notes

97 pts James Suckling August 2018
Super refined and cool peach and grapefruit aromas with gently flinty minerally accents. The oak adds a smoky edge. The palate has powerful driving fruit with punchy acid presence and a super long, fine and mouthwatering core of citrus and just-ripe white stone fruits. Grilled hazelnuts to close. Superb chardonnay. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes

Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay reflects the cool maritime climate of Tasmania's Coal River Valley, and the site itself is gently sloping, north-east facing, with light silica over sandstone. The result is a fine and precise Chardonnay with a backbone of firm acidity, and a combination of lightness of texture, and intensity of flavor.
On the nose there are hints of citrus and white flowers and on the palate the power and class shine through. A spine of crisp acidity is accompanied by great flavor through the line of the palate. There is a subtlety but also great concentration, and a purity that bodes well for cellaring.
