Dalrymple Estate sits in a vale 160 metres above Bass Strait in the Pipers River region of Tasmania. An easterly aspect, red basalt soils, natural flora and cool sea breezes, all combine to encourage the slow and even ripening of grapes, allowing their naturalflavours to gently meander and develop to optimum vinous levels.
Fruit was sourced from within our own vineyards at Pipers River as well as from a selected growers from the Coal Valley in the South East of Tasmania. Vineyards that are selected to provide fruit for our wines must have a proven track record of attention to detail with regard to vineyard management.
The wine has a vibrant ruby colour, with lifted sweet summer plums aroma, hints of cherry confiture, Chinese 5 spice and complexed with subtle savoury note. It has sweet summer fruits on the palate with nicely structured fresh acidity and silky tannins which in time delivers a savoury complexity typical of these sites.
A style that is approachable now, decant one hour before serving. Although will reward with careful cellaring for the next 5-8 years.
