Product Description

This wine shows the purity of fruit and balance, combined with concentration, that this vineyard can achieve with Pinot Noir. There is terrific brightness of fruit, with strawberry compote and blueberry notes, and a depth of flavour that comes without any heaviness or over-extraction. 

Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir reflects the cool maritime climate of Tasmania's Coal River Valley, and the site itself, a gently sloping site with a southerly aspect, with light silica over sandstone. The result is a beautifully aromatic and textured Pinot Noir, with intensity, power, purity and complexity.

REVUES ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
"Bright, clear crimson; the bouquet is at once powerful, yet eloquently varietal in precisely the same fashion as the palate; black cherry and plum lead the way, red fruits bringing up the rear; it has exceptional intensity and drive, with fine tannins reminiscent of those of top flight Burgundy."
97 points James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
 

Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
"The grapes were hand-picked, open-fermented (75% destemmed, 25% whole bunches), spending 10 days on skins with limited pump overs, then pressed straight to French oak barriques (25% new). The wine has a perfumed super-fragrant bouquet, the black cherry fruit of the very long palate gaining another degree of intensity and complexity on the finish and aftertaste. A classic peacock’s tail."

96 points James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
 
"Tolpuddle has for decades been one of Tasmania’s finest vineyards in the Coal River Valley, yet its fruits have never been bottled under its name until it was acquired by Shaw + Smith. This is it, for the first time, and I cannot recall an inaugural pinot noir release of such distinction from anywhere, ever. Effortlessly harmonious, confidently understated, exotically spiced, delicately lifted, deeply structured and exceptionally persistent."
96 points Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly, Edition 136, 10 January 2014
