Tolpuddle 2018 Pinot Noir
Winery : Tolpuddle
With no vintage 2019 Tolpuddle Pinot Noir released, the next vintage will be 2020 to be released in 2021.
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 only seven vintages, Tolpuddle has established itself as one of the country's top pinots.
Michele's notes: Deep but brilliant colour. Punchy, bold fruit with outstanding clarity too, bringing together purity with depth and complexity. Quite jubey in this vintage with pinot weight and a noticeably silky flow. This new release represents a consolidation of the Tolpuddle Pinot Noir style.
