2017 Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir

This wine is true to the Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir style: intensely aromatic, balanced with savoury spice notes from whole bunch fermentation, along with purity of varietal expression, fresh acidity and firm tannins. The 2017 vintage is very perfumed, medium bodied and approachable.

James Halliday - Top 100 Wines of 2018 - November 2018

Vinified with 40% whole bunches in open fermenters, the parcels spending 15-25 days on skins, matured in French barriques (30% new). This is an awesome wine, its bouquet charged with a distilled essence of cherry, strawberry and plum. There's nothing heavy-handed here, just sublime length, offering a virtually limitless future. 98 Points

 


 

Gourmet Traveller Wine - September 2018

The bouquet is wonderfully aromatic and lifted with dark to red cherry and mixed spice nuances, the palate medium to full-bodied and rich with density and fleshy extract. Discreet bunchy characters. An outstanding irresistible pinot. 97 Points

 


 

Nick Stock - James Suckling - August 2018

This 6th release of Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir is the finest work to date, as it shows refinement and true vineyard expression. The fruit aromas are wildly alluring with red and dark cherries, red plums, strawberries, pink grapefruit, blood oranges, peaches and pomegranate. Some light peppery notes and an array of freshly ground, hard brown spices, stony and sappy elements, crushed roses and violets. Very complex. The palate is just as impressive with strikingly resolved mix of power and elegance. Flavours of red and dark cherries, persimmon, plums and blackberries are encased in a sleeve of helix-like tannins, which also carry long and emanate waves of fresh fruit flavour. Intense red cherries and red plums hold the finish long and pure. This is something special. Drink or hold.  99 Points. 

 


 

James Suckling - July 2018

It’s impossible not to mention at least one pinot noir when it comes to cool-climate reds. In Tasmania’s Coal River Valley region, Tolpuddle Vineyard is making arguably the greatest pinot noir in Australia. Under the new ownership of Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith (Shaw + Smith) since 2011, the vineyard has been delivering improved results and now, showing full potential.

With an outstanding score of 99 points, 6th release of Tolpuddle Vineyard pinot noir is conclusive proof as it is a true vineyard expression with much refinement. Whether it’s the wildly attractive fruit aromas or the outstanding palate with fresh fruit flavors and long, helix-like tannins, this pinot noir has truly impressed us.

 


 

Huon Hooke - July - 2018

Deepish red with a good strong purple tint: a remarkable colour for a Tasmanian pinot. The bouquet is wonderfully aromatic and lifted, with dark to red cherry and spice aromas, the palate medium to full-bodied and rich, with density and weight and fleshy extract. The whole-bunch/stemmy characters are discreet and well managed. An outstanding pinot noir with irresistible flavours and aromas.
