Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2014 & 2015

Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2014 & 2015

Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith- well known vignerons of the Adelaide Hills- purchased the Tolpuddle vineyard, originally planted in 1988. The vineyard takes its name from the Tolpuddle Martyrs: English convicts transported to Tasmania forming an agricultural union. The purchase of this vineyard was expertly based on its prime set up for growing premium Chardonnay grapes. The result is a fine and precise Chardonnay with a backbone of firm acidity, and a combination of lightness of texture, and intensity of flavour. This wine shows finesse and poise, with delicate flavours of lime, green apple peel, and a savoury biscuit note. It has a firm seam of acidity that bodes well for ageing.
