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...

Jane Mitchell is one of Clare Valley's leading wine industry identities, Clare Valley Legend and Clare Valley Winemakers Hall of Fame, Centenary Federation of Australia Medal, SA Tourism Commission, Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board. Mitchell's largest vineyard is at Watervale, a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. It is known by the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz only ever yields minimal harvests, source of the most memorable vintages in our nation's.. These old clare valley vines are just getting better»

Flametree is a highly meritorious winemaking estate that works very closely with the most dedicated growers. A commitment to excellence is the driving force which sees the quality of wine gain stature with every vintage. The aim is to make wines that express the high quality of fruit and which strike the balance between flavour and structure. A balance of semi turbid and very turbid juices are wild fermented in a mix of seasoned and new French oak puncheons and barriques, followed by ten months repose in barrel.
Pale golden hues. Dried pear, grapefruit, honeydew melon and fig characters are well supported by subtle French oak. The palate is textured, yet savoury, from the exciting wild ferments and turbid juices, a perfect balance of fruit flavours and tight structures, very much in line with the new wave of modern Australian Chardonnay.
