Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2021

White Wine

In Tasmania’s south-east, the Coal River Valley’s climate is extreme for viticulture. Rainfall is low, with approximately 500mm per year. This cool but dry climate allows grapes to ripen slowly without disease pressure, resulting in grapes of great aromatic intensity.

Planted in 1988 to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. the vineyard is on a gentle slope, north- east facing. The soil is light silica sands over sandstone, and of moderate vigour, ensuring wellbalanced vines.

Following on from a wet winter, the season unfolded with wetter than average spring conditions. This regular rainfall helped set up good soil moisture in the vineyards. We have also experienced one of the coolest seasons on record, leading to a high percentage of smaller berries, giving lower yields and excellent concentration of flavour.

A very exciting vintage. Quite expressive on the nose, with some lemon peel and quince notes. On the palate, there is some breadth and power, and a sense that this will be a long living wine. The touch of opulence is reined in by the classic Tolpuddle Vineyard seam of acidity, bringing the palate into its customary focused line.

The grapes were all hand picked, whole bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak. The wine spent nine months in barrel with gentle stirring as required, then rested in tank on lees.
