Our opinion:

We simply cannot get enough of Tolpuddle. To be honest, we were contemplating keeping all of these cases for ourselves as these wines simply do not make it all the way to Europe all that often. Tolpuddle has been on a hot streak recently and the 2018 is no exception. Scoring 98-points from both Suckling and Halliday and being described as "so elegant, pristine and pure. Exceptional" and "An irresistible wine with spectacular length", it's easy to see why the domestic market keeps everything for itself. In terms of quality, this chardonnay sits right up there with top 1er Cru and Grand Cru Burgundy. 

 

What the critics say: 

98 | JamesSuckling.com

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.

 

98 | Halliday Wine Companion

Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in French oak barrels with limited stirring. The bouquet and palate send the same message of perfectly captured white stone fruits, then apple and grapefruit. An irresistible wine with spectacular length

 

Tolpuddle

"Clarity, precision and focus that matches up to any top Grand Cru Burgundy. Not for the faint of heart but the fearless."

- James Suckling 

Tolpuddle are leading the charge placing Tasmania on the global fine wine map. Tasmania, an island off the South-East side of Australia, offers a micro-climate that is more is more in line with regions of Europe such as Burgundy than it is with a typical hot Australian climate. The cooling influences of the ocean mean that Tasmania producers phenomenal wine from cool-climate grape types. Located towards the southeast of Tasmania, the Coal River Valley region producers the greatest chardonnay and pinot noir in Australia. Like great Burgundy, the grapes are handpicked, fermented and matured in French oak Barrels for 10 months with gentle batonnage. These wines don’t make it over to Europe in masses and often sell out on release quickly.
