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...

Hand picked fruit is destemmed with minimal crushing to keep the berries whole. Chilled to 8C for cold soaking into closed fermenters, designed with a one-to-one ratio of height and length, just great for colour and flavour extraction. The ferments are pumped over daily using a turbopiguer. On skins for ten days, tasted regularly to monitor tannin, before pressing off skins through an airbag tank press. Pumped to French oak barriques from a number of Bordeaux cooperages for malolactic, barrels are racked twice over ten months maturation and development. Treated to fining trials for essessment of the final balance, Fraser Gallop is bottled unfined after a cross flow filtration.
Bright crimson, ruby hues. A nose of red fruits and plum, mulberry and cranberry, floral notes and violet, the trademark Wilyabrup Cabernet dustiness over subtle oak adds complexity. The palate is soft and approachable with juicy plum and pomegranate flavours. Consistent, grainy tannins not unlike the astringency of cranberry juice. Background oak allows the fruit to shine, acidity and alcohol levels are in balance.
