Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2018
The Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay is a wine of finesse and poise, with delicate flavours of lime, green apple peel with a savoury biscuit note and a firm seam of acidity that bodes well for ageing.
A single vineyard wine from TasmaniaÛªs Coal River Valley, Tolpuddle is already showing promise as one of AustraliaÛªs finest Chardonnays. Planted in 1988, the vineyard takes its name from the Tolpuddle Martyrs, a group of English convicts who were transported to Tasmania for having the audacity to form an agricultural union. In 2006 the vineyard won the inaugural Tasmanian vineyard of the year award, capturing the attention of numerous wine luminaries including Shaw + Smith duo Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith MW who acquired the vineyard in 2011.
