Tolpuddle 2020 Chardonnay (Tasmania)

From Tasmania's southeastern Coal River Valley, Tolpuddle has cemented its reputation as one of Australia's most revered single vineyards. The winery's Chardonnay style is a rich, Burgundian expression, leaning fairly heavily into reductive, struck match, flint and roasted nut territory. But it never goes too far. The delicate white peach and preserved lemon notes are what tip it back into balance. The palate is mouthfilling but lifted by pristine acidity. A lick of hazelnut oak supports without dominating, and a toasty, saline finish lingers long in the mouth. A classy and distinctive Chard with a long life ahead. Drink now–2037. Christina Pickard
