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 way to make great Marlborough Riesling is simple and straighforward. Leaf pruning of the vines is essential in achieving maximum quality of fruit. Moderate yields, moderate leaf plucking and harvesting at moderate brix levels all combine to produce an amazing Riesling wine. Grapes are harvested and gently pressed, the excusively free run juices are inoculated through a choice aromatic strain of yeast to enhance natural fruit flavours. Pressings are discarded and ferments are maintained at low temperatures to retain the vivid and intense citrus characters of Marlborough Riesling. Upon completion the wine is allowed to sit on lees for a several months before being gently filtered and bottled.
Brilliant straw colour with pale hue. Lively nose, florals and ripe fruit hinting of peaches and pear, lemons, lime and mandrarin peel aromas leap out of the glass. An off dry palate exhibiting impressive concentration and length, nicely balanced by firm citrus acidity. Tantalizing suggestion of mineral and satisfying textures, balance and weight over crisp acid backbone.
