Chardonnay - Tolpuddle 2014 Chardonnay

$62.00 - $360.00

Tolpuddle Vineyard was founded in 1988 by Bill Casimaty, Gary Crittenden and Tony Jordan. The new owners since 2011, cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill-Smith (Shaw & Smith), were on a look-and-see jaunt in Tasmania when they became smitten by Tolpuddle's Coal Valley location and mature vines, planted only to pinot noir and chardonnay. George Loveless would have found it ironic that as a transported convict he ended up on the site of a modern day utopia of agriculture production. Loveless was the leader of the 'Tolpuddle Martrys', who were transported to Tasmania for founding the rather benign sounding Friendly Society of Agricultural Labourers, and served part of his sentence working on a property near Richmond in Tasmania's south east. Part of that property is now Tolpuddle Vineyard.

Tolpuddle wines are made by Shaw & Smith winemaker Adam Wadewitz (ex Bests). The experienced Ray Guerin (AGT WINE Viticulturist of the Year) looks after the vines.

2014 Tolpuddle Chardonnay $62, SIX + free freight $360: Outstanding cellar proposition with its purity of fruit, fine and steely backbone and excellent natural acidtiy. Lithe and elegant, it will develop curves in all the right places after at least five years more in bottle. Now there's white peach, flinty stone and lemon curd and a lip-smackingly zesty and ultra long finish.

2013 Tolpuddle Chardonnay 1.5L MAGNUM $132: UNBOXED

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
