Trophy Winner Best Tasmanian Chardonnay (IWC 2016)

In 2006 Tolpuddle Vineyard won the inaugural Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year award, reflecting the performance of this unique and distinguished site. Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith are fully committed to seeing Tolpuddle Vineyard recognised as one of Australia’s great vineyards for Chardonnay & Pinot Noir. Given it is a single vineyard, quantities are limited.

“Light yellow hue, the bouquet showing very fresh, refined, cashew nut and creamy yeast lees aromas, tight and reserved. The palate backs this up, with very tight, fine, high-acid presence, which is positively Chablis-esque. Piercing acidity is strongly felt. An absolutely cracking cool-climate chardonnay.” – 97 Points Huon Hooke
 

“Tight. Always released too early, so I gave it a day to relax. And another day for good measure. The outcome of all that is, in short, that it’s Very Good. Bright, tangy, almost Chablis-like with pure fruit, leaning towards lime and white peach, green olive mitigated by some creamy cashew, stony texture, then a big burst through the finish. Line and length, I guess, is what they go for, but this year packs in a bit more ripeness and flavour, which is more than welcome. The feel of it is very good. And it’s very good to drink. It’s a pretty intellectual style, but gee they’ve done it well this year.” – 95 Points Gary Walsh 10/15
