There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

Dalrymple Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Pipers Brook Tasmania
Nestled within a cocoon of mixed vegetation and rolling hills, Dalrymple enjoys a unique and seductive aspect shared by only a few boutique vineyards littering Tasmania's Pipers River region. Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987 after a long search for the perfect site, this small mature vineyard is now owned by the Hill Smith family and produces some of Australia's most distinctive cool climate, regional wines. Dalrymple is a textural Sauvignon Blanc, refined and exquisitely balanced, aromatic yet pleasingly dry, generous with ripe cumquat flavours.

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.
