Tolpuddle Chardonnay Coal River Valley Tasmania 2014 £44.95
A year of mixed fortunes, with some frost, rain and heat episodes, meaning vigilance was important. Overall it was cool and, at times cold, resulting in poor fruit set but no disease pressure. The resulting yields were low but the fruit carried exceptional flavour.
An intensely aromatic nose that shows lemon peel, white blossom, wet stone and a captivating struck match note. Thrilling natural acidity courses through the palate with concentrated lemon barley, grapefruit and biscuit elements contributing weight to the body. There is intensity but also plenty of texture and verve, as well as a long finish.

Truly beautiful. It flows effortlessly but then feels tight and reserved. It's going to be a humdinger once it's had time to flesh out and grow properly into its skin. White peach, lemon, flint and grilled nuts. It's all there, contained, elegant, harmonious. Grapefruit to the finish. Ever so stylish.
