- 97 Punkte JAMES HALLIDAY und Special Value for Money: "This label is certain to grace some of the greatest Aus pinots and chardonnays in the years ahead, the vineyard (planted in '88) a Tasmanian jewel. The most remarkable part of this wine is its combination of finesse, length and intensity of varietal fruit flavour, in turn based on the laser etching of Tasmanian acidity. 12,5 % Alc. Drink by 2025."

Beschreibung: 

Unheimlich frisch und sogar krisp knallt erstmal Zitrus über den Gaumen, Mineralität und sich dann fein aufbauende Frucht mit Guave, Mango und Grapefruit ziehen nach, ebenso die feschen Tannine und das Barrique mit kaltgeräuchertem Bacon, Brioche und Sternanis. Diesem Wein fehlt noch etwas Zeit zum Reifen, unzweifelhaft ist er aber ein ganz toller klassisch proportionierter Chardonnay von großer Reinheit und Eleganz. Tasmanischer Premier Grand Cru.

Source
Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay is entirely from the Tolpuddle Vineyard, first planted in 1988. In 2013, standout parcels were selected from blocks3, 5, 11 and 16 for this first release of Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay.

Vinification
The grapes were all hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barriques, of which one-third were new, and the balance second use and third use barrels. Only minimal malolactic fermentation,so the freshness of the natural aciditywas retained.

Maturation
The wine spent eight months in barrel with gentle stirring as required, then a further two months in tank on lees prior to bottling

Vintage notes: 
By Tasmanian standards 2013 was relatively warm and dry with low yields and good flavour concentration.

Winemakers comments:
Style
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 fine and precise Chardonnay with a backbone of firm acidity, and a combination of lightness of texture, and intensity of flavour.

2013 Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay
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 flavour through the line of the palate. There is a subtlety but also great concentration, and a purity that bodes well for cellaring.

History
In 1988, local farmers the Casimaty family joined forces with two of Australia?s foremost wine business trailblazers, Garry Crittenden and Tony Jordan, to plant a vineyard to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The vineyard was called Tolpuddle, and it took its name from the Tolpuddle Martyrs, whose reward for starting England?s first agrarian union was to be deported to Australia. The leader of the group, George Loveless, served part of his sentence working on a property
near Richmond called GlenAyr, part of which is now Tolpuddle Vineyard.
