JAMES HALLIDAY'S TOP 100 WINES, THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN, 11-12 Nov 2006
WHITE WINE OVER $20
Toolangi has lost no time in establishing its reputation, spreading its winemaking contracts across three wineries. This wine is made by Tom Carson at Yering Station, who has skilfully woven stone fruit, melon and barrel ferment inputs into a fine, intense and elegant showcase for Yarra Valley chardonnay. Drink: now-2012. With: pan-fried sweetbreads. 95 points.
WINSOR DOBBIN, WINE WITH WINSOR, 2006
Toolangi has built a huge reputation for its chardonnays and pinots and having just tasted three chardonnays from the 2004 vintage, I was blown away by the quality at all three price points. The basic 2004 chardonnay is quite lean and restrained, but a damn fine drink for $20.
