NEUER JAHRGANG | frisch eingetroffen!!

Einer von Australiens besten Chardonnays aus einer der bedeutendsten einzigartigen Einzellagen - ganz unten unter der Presse-Auswahl finden Sie mehr Infos zum Tolpuddle Vineyard im tasmanischen Coal Valley.

Das Bouquet zeigt feine Zitrusnoten und ist zart rauchig, mit Belüftung kommen Feuerstein-Akzente hinzu, intensive weiße Blütenaromen, ein Hauch von Grapefruit. Straff, elegant, Zitrus, Bergamottezitrone, Jasmin und andere weiße Blüten, Salzzitronen, Manzanilla, Mandeln, dann zarter Blütenhonig im Abgang und etwas kalter Rauch - spannend und delikat.

Sehr burgundisch kühl und straff, nicht süß, dabei reif und mit ausgewogenem Barrique auch vom Körper her perfekt dimensioniert. Ein großer schlanker Wein mit sicherem Reifepotential. Karaffiert und mit ein paar Stunden Luft schon jetzt ein wunderbarer Trinkgenuss zu Persimone|Burrata|Zitrone, zum Fisch mit Trüffelrisotto oder wie vom Weingut empfohlen zu gebratenen Jakobsmuscheln.

Potential für ein langes, aufregend schönes Leben von mindestens 7-10 Jahren.

Winemaker´s Comment zum 2020er:

"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."

Good soil moisture from July and August rains meant the season started well. Cool and windy weather during flowering resulted in small bunch sizes, giving low crops with increased concentration and intensity. February saw even ripening and a rainfall event three weeks before harvest slowed the season down, resulting in fruit that was packed with flavour.

Nick Stock - Jamessuckling.com - November 2021
This really asserts itself at the top echelon of chardonnay, in a context that extends far beyond the shores of the tiny island state of Tasmania. Already in such a great place, with aromas of white peach, lemon, lemon curd and very precisely curated sulphides adding interest. There’s wet chalk, lemon peel and gentle hazelnutty oak in play as well. The palate has seamless, layered and fresh citrus and peach flavors, as well as a stream of pithy grapefruit and peach on offer. Acidity holds the finish long and true. This is one of the most elegant vintages of this wine, reminiscent of the 2014. Oak chimes in so subtly on the finish. Drink or hold. 99 points.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review - November 2021
The Tolpuddle wines hit the ground running when the 2012 vintage was launched, but they continue to improve and the 2020s are arguably the best yet. The colour is a youthful, very light yellow and it has a powerful smoky, toasty bouquet with a component of struck-flint character. The wine is tightly focused and lively on the tongue with bright acidity and penetrating length. A superb, piercingly tensioned chardonnay with cool-climate precision, finesse and length. It’s great now and will age superbly. 97 Points.

Tolpuddle Chardonnay 2020: 95 Punkte
(bestbewerteter Wein)
James Suckling, 1. Dezember 2020
This has power and complexity and the right grade of reductive flair, overlaid on fresh yellow grapefruit and peach with flint and wet chalk, as well as attractive oak in the background. The palate has mouthwatering white-peach and lemon flavors with a deep draw of acidity that drives the finish in really deep, precise and fresh. Lip-smacking resolve here. Elegance, poise and whip-cracking freshness. Drink over the next six years. 98 points

“Tolpuddle is cementing its place in the great regional chardonnays of Australia, with its piercing purity and intensity reflecting its great Richmond vineyard. Its impact on the aftertaste has no equal, leaving you rooted to the spot. Tolpuddle doesn’t waste great vintage opportunities.” – 98 Points


Tolpuddle Vineyard is an outstanding site within the Coal River Valley region. Planted in 1988 solely to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the vineyard takes its name from the Tolpuddle Martyrs, whose “reward” for starting England’s first agrarian union was to be transported to Tasmania as convicts.

The vineyard is on a gentle slope, north- east facing. The soil is light silica sands over sandstone, and of moderate vigour, ensuring well-balanced vines.

Since acquiring the vineyard in 2011, Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith have invested heavily in improving all aspects of the vineyard, including soil improvement, conversion to cane pruning, trellis modifications, frost protection and clonal improvements. They are fully committed to seeing it recognised as one of Australia’s great single vineyard sites.

  • All vertical shoot positioning (VSP), with 3 sets of foliage wires
  • Majority of blocks are cane pruned with some PIN on spurs
  • No Glyphosate herbicide used at Tolpuddle Vineyard, and we are encouraging the growth of low ground cover and clover under vine
  • Use of organic practices to avoid overuse of chemical sprays, and latest technology recycle spray machinery to prevent drift and waste
  • Selected mid rows are allowed to grow through to flowering to support beneficial insects to reduce pesticide use
  • Natural seaweed fertilizers and composts used as alternative to synthetics
  • Multi-tasking vineyard equipment used to minimise the number of tractor passes in the vineyard
  • Planting of natural grasses between rows to eliminate erosion
  • Avoidance of heavy machinery such as machine harvesters to minimize soil compaction
