Tolpuddle 2021 Pinot Noir
Winery : Tolpuddle
Tolpuddle Vineyard was founded in 1988 by Bill Casimaty, Gary Crittenden and Tony Jordan. Owners since 2011, 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. In barely a decade, Tolpuddle has established itself as one of the country's top pinots.
Vineyard notes: This wine has gorgeous aromatics with violets and red berries to the fore. There is abundant fruit, with sour cherry, raspberry, blueberry, and a touch of rhubarb. Underlying savoury characters include graphite and cured meat, and some toasted spices. Medium weight, with very fine tannins. Fresh and enticing, perfumed and delicious.
