James Halliday's Top 100 Wines Pauls Lane Chardonnay

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Great to be listed in the latest Weekend Australian James Halliday Top 100 Wines Magazine.

There were 20 Chardonnays chosen. James refers to them as "superb, modern world-class Chardonnays."

Happy to be in such fine company.

"A single block was hand-picked and made at Hoddles Creek Estate by Franco D'Anna in his usual restrained style, except for a surge of stone fruit on the back-palate and finish, 11 months in French oak hardly breaking the water. First class wine. Rating 96."

Chardonnay Love Affair at the Yarra Valley Dairy

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

It's great weather for Chardonnay. Meet us at the Yarra Valley Dairy on Sunday 26 October to taste the six Chardonnays in the Toolangi range.

A rare opportunity to experience the 2008 Reserve Chardonnay. Nick Stock from the Good Wine Guide calls this wine "A Breathtaking chardonnay - symphonic!"

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

2015 James Halliday Wine Companion

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Toolangi is thrilled to again be awarded 5 Red Star outstanding winery status, with 11 of our current release wines scoring over 93 in this and prior editions.

The yet to be released 2012 Pauls Lane Chardonnay received an outstanding rating of 97.

2012 PAULS LANE CHARDONNAY

Hand-picked from estate vineyards, made at Oakridge, barrel-fermented and aged in French oak for 11 months. Here the flinty reduction of the bouquet is more obvious than the standard version, but still well within bounds as far as I am concerned. Greater concentration and intensity of the fruit is very obvious; from this perspe4ctive, a prime example of the importance of terroir. Will live for an inordinately long time. Rating 97. Drink to 2025.

2012 PAULS LANE PINOT NOIR

Estate-grown, hand-picked grapes from especially low-cropped vines, made at Oakridge, aged in French barriques for 10 months. The colour is a little deeper than its sibling; the bouquet is frangrant and expressive,m the medium-bodied palate following suit, with cherry and plum fruit in the ascendant, oak evident, but in balanced harmony; silky tannins sustain the long finish. Rating 95. Drink to 2021

Pristine fruit...

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

When next travelling Qantas keep your eye out for the 2011 Toolangi Pauls Lane Pinot Noir.

"The Toolangi vineyards are at Dixon's Creek and the cool-growing environs yield pristine fruit of intensity and finesse. A delicate strawberry and redcurrent perfume with hints of classic sous bois flows smoothly to a supple, spicy palate with an ethereal finish."

2010 Estate Chardonnay, Winestate "Best Wines of 2013"

Monday, February 17, 2014

The Toolangi 2010 Estate Chardonnay was named as one of the Best Wines of 2013 in the Winestate 2014 Annual.

"A modern style of chardonnay with some well handled oak sitting on top of melon-like varietal fruit. The nose is bright and light, the palate fresh and lively with a lingering finish. Five stars."

Best of the Best Chardonnay

Monday, August 19, 2013

In the recently released 2014 James Halliday Wine Companion two of our chardonnay's, the 2010 Reserve (to be released 2014) and the 2011 Block F have received scores of 97 and are placed in the Top 10 chardonnay's from Australia.

James says that "chardonnay performs well almost everywhere it is grown but two regions in Australia stand apart, Margaret River with 15 wines 96 points and above and the Yarra Valley with 12 such wines", three of them Toolangi with the 2011 Pauls Lane Chardonnay receiving 96.
