Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

The 20 hectare north-east facing Tolpuddle Vineyard is located in the Coal River Valley of Tasmania, which is in a rain shadow, so is dry but cold. The dry climate ensures there is very low disease pressure, which in turn means that the grapes can be left on the vines for longer to ensure they ripen fully. All the fruit was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak. The wine spent ten months in barrel with gentle stirring as required, then rested in tank on lees for a further 4 months. This wine shows white floral and lemon barley notes on the nose. Classic Tolpuddle backbone of acidity, yellow grapefruit, lemon pith, and some flinty minerality. A combination of lightness, delicacy, texture, and extract. A touch of lees derived shortbread flavour adds complexity. This wine has a great future.
