Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes are sheep herding, river fishing and making smoked goose sausages. The wines of Dalrymple Estate have established a quiet repute amongst devotees of the more elegant Tasmanian styling, enduring exemplars of delicacy, effortless refinement and the most exquisite balance, eloquent of a magnificent terroir... The verdant nook on pipers brook»
Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington...

The refinement and sophistication of Eden Valley Shiraz are duly matched by the labour of love in nurturing vines on such difficult terroirs. Fruit is delivered to the winery, immediately crushed into fermenters and inoculated with neutral yeasts. Each block of Shiraz is separately vinified on skins for eight to ten days. A regimen of daily pumpovers, allowing the colour, flavour and tannins to be gently extracted from skins, contribute to the overall complexity of the finished wine. Upon completion of primary ferments, batches are drained, pressed and seeded with bacteria for malolactic. Components of are sent to mature several months in a selection of seasoned French and American oak barrels before the final assemblage.
Vibrant plum red with purple hues. A fresh and lifted nose of dark cherry, plum and acai berry complimented by a subtle secondary aroma of spice. Flavours of dark cherries and red fruit flow across the mouth with dark blueberry fruit and white pepper. The style is all about elegance and generosity of flavours over chocolate and blackberry framework, a seamless expression of poised new world Shiraz.
