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.

A no expense spared approach to vineyard management leads to a selective harvest of the highest quality fruit, all conducted by hand and sorted bunch by bunch. Components are fermented on skins and treated to daily pumpovers ensuring optimal extraction of flavour and colour. Batches are pressed off skins while still slightly sweet and pumped to new, fine grained French oak barriques and hogsheads for completion of ferments, followed by racking off lees and return to the same barrels fortwo years maturation. Barrels are periodically rack and returned to achieve clarity and contribute to the wine's development. A further term of bottle age serves to integrate the wine and tame the tannins.
Deep crimson red. Brooding nose of brambleberry and dark currants, full of cassis and spicy cedar notes underpinned by dried herbs. A rich and complex fruit driven palate displaying sweet, dense, dark berry fruit characters and some chocolate mint notes. The flavours seamlessly integrate with vanilla and mocha oak and flow through to a long, fine and lingering, fruit filled yet savoury, silky tannin finish.
