This is a wine we have not yet seen from Tolpuddle. It has such well-curated complexity and whole-bunch influence (40%) sits in the sweet spot. It is concentrated, yet so elegant and the vivid freshness that pervades every aspect of the nose and palate is striking. Aromas of red fruit, such as raspberry, strawberry, red cherry and red plum are framed in spice and fragrance. The palate has such impressive definition and clarity and the tannins are so detailed, fine and clear-cut. Concentrated red and darker cherries are fleshy, yet elegantly focused, and the acidity laces it all up so clearly. So drinkable now and for a decade at least. Screw cap.
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.
