Established in 1995, Toolangi Vineyard is in the Dixons Creek subregion of the Yarra Valley, adjoining the Toolangi State Forest. This single site vineyard on fine clay loam produces wines with distinctive personalities, each wine showing a strong sense of place. 

Fruit was hand-picked between the 21st and 23rd of March. 2021 was a welcome return to ideal growing conditions in the Yarra Valley. It was a prolonged and classical season which allowed for long hang times and excellent flavour development.

The fruit was whole bunch pressed directly to French oak barriques, puncheons, a foudre (10% new) and a ceramic egg for primary fermentation. Just 10% of the blend underwent malolactic conversion and there was no battonage. The wine rested for 10 months before being bottled. 

A wonderful release, flush with Yarra Valley freshness, lovely citrus and white fruits, just a bare touch of reduction and lots of chalky freshness. The intensity of flavour is matched to steely acidity and a pure and focused mouthfeel. The 2021 is punching well above its weight.

Reviews

“This is a dry, structural chardonnay with everything there and waiting to unfold. If you have a bit of patience then at $30 it’s a bit of a steal; but only with that proviso. Flint, steel, citrus and nectarine flavours gradually work toward white peach, chalk and cedarwood. It’s both inherently complex and inherently reserved. Give it another 12-24 months in bottle and it will begin to shine.”
92 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
"Pale lemon in the glass with white peach and smoky struck flint notes on the nose. Medium in weight with a fine-boned acid profile that meshes well with ripe stone fruits, crushed sea shells, and smoky oak nuances. Good length and persistence to the finish. A quality chardonnay at this price"
