Just a few kilometres north of Lowburn, near the windswept shores of frigid Lake Dunstan, atop the parched and laborious terroirs of Central Otago, a high country merino stud between the Amisfield and Parkburn streams was sown to vineyards two decades ago. Grazing country makes magnificent viticulture, the austere alluvial and glacial schist soils now yield the quality of Pinot Noir which has defined Central Otago as the world's most demonstrable marque in full bodied, intensely complex, yet beguilingly seamless Pinot Noir. The challenging terraces which spiral around the fractious knolls of Amisfield Vineyard, sire a sensational range of wines defined by their affable excellence, sound structure and pristine, penetrating varietal fruit...

Dalrymple Single Site Coal River Valley Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Coal River Tasmania
Coal River Valley is most conspicuous for disappointingly low rainfall and punishingly dry winds. Dalrymple conducted an exhaustive search of the region to find a choice site offering excellent moisture retention under the lee of protective trees. A mix of whole bunch and destemmed grapes are treated to a week of wild indigenous yeast ferments and frequent pumpovers, drained and pressed to an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak hogsheads for a term of age. A beguilingly beautiful wine, open before service and allow the layers of complexity to unravel.

Deep crimson, purple hues. Pretty blue florals and dried herb, an immediate wave of Asian spice, cinnamon and cloves lift from the glass, sour cherries, blood plum and rose petals pink, savoury notes evolve after hours of opening, riper fruit. The richness of palate sings with lift and freshness from a fine acid line, concentration of fruit and fine acidity gives, persistence and length to the finish.
