About
Sometimes the quality of a wine lifts it well above the pack.

About The Wine

This is an exquisite Single Vineyard Chardonnay from Anna Pooley and the whole Pooley team.

The Cooinda Vale fruit in this wine once formed an integral component of the famous Yattarna Chardonnay from Penfolds. Since 2016 Anna has kept the fruit separate in order to produce a single expression from this immaculate site. And it's a blinder.

The 2017 might be the best to date from this great vineyard. It's a blistering Chardonnay. Tight, nervy and crackling with energy. A huge 97 points from Gary Walsh at The Wine Front says it all.

Get in now on what is sure to be one of Tasmania's most sought-after Chardonnays given time.

About Pooley

Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, renowned for their exquisite Single Vineyard examples of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Coal River region, less than an hour north of Hobart.

The family vineyard was planted in 1985 by Margaret and Denis Pooley. Today it is in the hands of the third generation of Pooleys, with award-winning winemaker Anna Pooley heading up the cellar and her brother Matt as viticuluralist. They make a killer team and the family business is going from strength to strength.

Anna's wines are pure, refined and eminently cellar-worthy. A class-act producer setting a cracking pace for all of Tasmania to follow.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Flint, wet stones, a whiff of spent match green melon and almond with white peach and citrus. Cool mineral crunch through the mouth with an insanely long finish. It's pretty wound up at the moment but given time it could become something truly majestic. - Different Drop Wine Team

97Points
The Wine Front

"It’s not over-made, nor is it under-made; it’s all just so. It’s a wine characterized by its purity, line, and length. There’s a silky almond gloss and flavour, mild lemon and grapefruit, perhaps some pie apple with spice, though its flavours are subdued, yet beautifully clean. The rain-washed-white-pebble kind of acidity (well, you have to talk some shit, every now and then as it’s part of the brief), is something else. As is the aforementioned length. Expect subtlety and quiet confidence, but don’t come seeking oak and peaches. Here’s a Chardonnay for you." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
