Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2019
In 2011, the team behind Shaw + Smith purchased the award-winning Tolpuddle Vineyard in the Coal River Valley, Tasmania. This is once again a sensational release and merely emphasises the incredible potential for Chardonnay in this cool-climate region. The 2019 is crystalline, racy and powerful, perfectly marrying layers of naturally intense stone fruits, mealy oak and flinty minerality. A super release that would benefit from additional age, though would be equally stunning if paired with oysters.
