Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by their exceptional value, purity of parentage and wondrous regional..

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 unique topography and lush vegetation around Dalrymple's vineyards mean that very few blocks require irrigation. The fruit is ripened on the vine until luscious characters of passionfruit and spice evolve. Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a number of Tasmanian vineyards, including Coal River valley, the White Hills region of Tamar Valley and Dalrymple's own Block K, all assembled with a view to retaining the different flavour spectrums of each parcel, to achieve a wine of great complexity. Each component is harvested and vinified separately with a variety of yeast strains and lees contact, aimed at contributing complexity and developing layers within the mouthfeel and palate.
Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of cut grass, crushed nettles and passionfruit skins mixed with wild notes from indigenous fermentation and extended lees stirring. The palate is as crisp and refreshing as a cold Tasmanian morning, with a fleshy texture and long lasting, mouth watering acidity that gives the wine incredible length. Perfect alongside seafood or shucked oysters.
