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...

Since inaugural vintage, Clover Hill has been crafted to full Methode traditionnelle, a highly specialised process which demands considerable patience and expertise. Grapes are gently whole bunch pressed and fermented in separate batches, followed by a preliminary bottling with active yeasts and a small amount of sugar (tirage). Clover Hill is then matured on lees while being treated to a course of bottle riddling, gradually rotated until the lees eventually settle in the neck of the bottle. The neck is then frozen and degorged before a dosage of liqueur d'expedition and reserve wines aged in French oak foudres to define the excellence and style which is Clover Hill. Alcohol 12.5%
Soft, pale lemon colour, a lively, persistent bead and gentle, creamy mousse. Attractive, zesty lemon and citrus nose complemented by ripe melon and white peach characters. The palate displays a long acid line and soft, aged almond kernel over bread crust flavours which create fullness. An elegant sparkling exhibiting all the hallmarks of of a grand Tasmanian cuvee, resolving on a finish of ripe fruit flavours and fresh, crisp acid.
