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.
2017 Review: It carries a serious clip of cedar wood-accented oak, but the fruit is pure and strong. This is a muscular pinot noir with plum and anise notes bursting through dry spice and wood smoke. The tannin here has the crackle of quality to it, as indeed does the fruit. It has every muscle flexed right now but it'll be better once it's had time to ease off and settle into itself. Screwcap. 13.5%. To 2029. $38; Rating: 94 Points; Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion
