Beschreibung

Vereint das Beste, was man ganz unbedarft mit jeweils ´Alter´ und ´Neuer Welt´ assoziiert: voll ausgereifte Frucht (Kirsch, Himbeere, Schlehe) und Konzentration, dazu elegante Komplexität mit würzigen Kräuter- und Walduntertönen, Süßholz; eine frische Fokussiertheit mit bester Säure, langen und feinen Tanninen und edelstem Barrique...

Und alles nahtlos in einem mittleren Körper verbunden. Kann man einfach als unheimlich leckeren Pinot wegschlürfen oder auch nochmal genauer unter die Lupe nehmen und ins Sinnieren geraten - was hat Tasmanien, das diesen Pinot dennoch so eigenständig und ´un-australisch´ schmecken läßt, ohne daß er dabei im Gegenzug ´nur französisch´ anmuten würde. Einfach eine Klasse für sich!

Zum Essen empfehlen wir die Kombi mit Crostini und/oder Pilzrisotto, sogar mit Fisch und auch zum Filetsteak mit fermentiertem schwarzen Pfeffer und gebratenem Romanasalat mit Walnusstopping. Michaels Antwort auf die Frage nach dem Essen war (mal wieder): "Duck of course!"

Weinberg: Tolpuddle Vineyard, 1988 angepflanzt

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.

Winemakers comments:
This wine is true to the Tolpuddle Vineyard style. It has very intense red and dark berry fruit, as well as some wild fennel and rhubarb notes on the nose. On the palate, there is a lot of concentrated fruit, balanced by fresh acidity and some fine tannins. Cherry and raspberry notes through to darker blueberry and boysenberry give complexity to a palate that flows seamlessly, and some Chinese five spice characters give a hint of more savoury notes to come with time.
Winemaking:

The grapes were all hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches, in open fermenters, with gentle plunging. The wine was aged in French oak for nine months, of which about one third was new.

Vintage notes:
Following on from a wet winter, the season unfolded with wetter than average spring conditions. This regular rainfall helped set up good soil moisture in the vineyards. We have also experienced one of the coolest seasons on record, leading to a high percentage of smaller berries, giving lower yields and excellent concentration of flavour.
Ideal serving temperature: 16–18°C
Your favourite recipe for this wine: Duck of course!

ÜBER TOLPUDDLE (Auszüge):

MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front:
The single site wine has leapt to the upper echelons of Australian wine consciousness in a relatively short while, and, of course, has become an anticipated release and, of course, the associated commentary. Dazzling winemaking, loaded with personalities of the Shaw + Smith juggernaut and their arsenal of wine intelligence…

JAMES HALLIDAY:
If ever a winery was born with blue blood in its veins, Tolpuddle would have to be it. The vineyard was established in 1988 on a continuous downhill slope facing northeast, and in 06 won the inaugural Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year Award. Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw are joint managing directors. David LeMire looks after sales and marketing; Adam Wadewitz, one of Australia’s brightest winemaking talents, is senior winemaker; and Ray Guerin, one of Australia’s most experienced viticulturists, with specialist expertise in cool climate vineyards, is group viticulturist. Vineyard manager Carlos Souris loses nothing in comparison, with over 30 years of grape growing in Tasmania under his belt, and an absolutely fearless approach to making a great vineyard even greater.

STEVEN SPURRIER:
A new benchmark for Australian Pinot Noir.

JAMES SUCKLING:
A statement of the clarity and power that is possible in the Coal River Valley.
