Professional Wine Reviews for Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Rated 96 by Decanter
Quite a tarry, meaty and savory edge to this nose, really bold and assertive; it is nicely wound together and has bright red cherry and pink grapefruit aromas as well as a smoky, flinty note. The palate's supple, bright, lithe and fresh with red and dark cherry fruit flavor, red plums too. Plenty of acid crunch, clear whole bunch influence on both palate and nose, and web-like, deep, fine tannins; detailed, light and shade. Needs time. Drink in 2018.(Suckling)

Additional Information on Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Winery Tolpuddle Vineyard

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir translates as 'black pine' in French, and is named as such due to the extremely inky color of the fruits, which hang in bunches the shape of a pine cone. Wineries often struggle with Pinot Noir vines, as more than most red wine grape varietals, they fail in hot temperatures and are rather susceptible to various diseases which can be disastrous when hoping for a late harvest. Thanks to new technologies and methods for avoiding such problems, however, the Pinot Noir grape varietal has spread across the world to almost every major wine producing country. Why? Quite simply because this is considered to be one of the finest grape varietals one can cultivate, due to the fact that it can be used to produce a wide range of excellent wines full of interesting, fresh and fascinating flavors Their thin skins result in a fairly light-bodied wine, and the juices carry beautiful notes of summer fruits, currants and berries, and many, many more.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
