Tolpuddle Chardonnay has a very creamy, lightly spiced oak aroma that flows effortlessly but then has a tight and reserved finish with flavours of clean-cut citrus fruit. It is slightly on the leaner side but still showcasing great power and length.
Bright, tangy, almost Chablis-like with pure fruit, leaning towards lime and white peach, green olive mitigated by some creamy cashew, stony texture, then a big burst through the finish.
A divine cool-climate chardonnay that should age gracefully.

“2017 Halliday Wine Companion:?Truly beautiful. It flows effortlessly but then feels tight and reserved. It’s going to be a humdinger once it’s had time to flesh out and grow properly into its skin. White peach, lemon, flint and grilled nuts. It’s all there, contained, elegant, harmonious. Grapefruit to the finish. Ever so stylish.?97 points”
