13.5 per cent YOUTH­FUL gar­net colour, the nose and palate a lit­tle un­giv­ing at this stage need­ing a good de­cant­ing to re­veal deep, sweet, black cherry aro­mas and flavours on an el­e­gantly struc­tured palate with sup­ple, beau­ti­fully in­te­grated tan­nins and the prom­ise of greater depth, power and plea­sure to come. TOLPUD­DLE 2012 PINOT NOIR

Rich­mond, Coal River Val­ley

A STUN­NING first re­lease by ac­claimed Ade­laide Hills- based Shaw + Smith, who bought the Tolpud­dle vine­yard in 2011. Depth, power, great fruit in­ten­sity, suc­cu­lent acid­ity and quite won­der­ful drive and carry through to a long, el­e­gant fin­ish. A great food wine now and just hint­ing at the com­plex­ity that a few more years will bring.
