2020 Tolpuddle Chardonnay
Here at The City Wine Shop we can’t get enough Australian Chardonnay and it seems neither can our customers. Gone are the days of over ripe, over oaked blousy beasts and gone are the days of overly lean, under ripe Chardonnays. Wine makers, growers and drinkers have found the sweet spot! Tolpuddle is the prime example, expressing texture and depth of flavour balanced with a strong line of acidity. There's oak but it's not the defining feature. Yields were low, so this is in short supply, so we’d recommend taking one for now and one for the cellar..if you can!.
"Layers of stone fruit, lemon curd and some richness derived from a slight yeasty lees and fine oak, this wine is hallmarked by a mineral, flinty note. Acid provides great support to balance the flavours and weight. This is high quality chardonnay that you know will get better with time in bottle. Be patient, hide a few bottles for 12-18 months and you will thank yourself!" - City Wine Shop
“Backbone of acidity, yellow grapefruit, lemon pith, and some flinty minerality. A combination of lightness, delicacy and texture.” -Tolpuddle
