Winemaker Notes

The deep hues are characteristic of the season. aromas of black cherry, Asian spice and peat from the whole bunch component, with some savoury olive and dutch licorice adding to the complexity. The palate has brilliant balance of tannin and acidity, with fleshy black fruit on the front palate and a long, fresh finish. Hints of spice complexity and fine French oak provide a hint of what may unfold as the wine further develops in the glass over several hours or from cellaring.

Slow cooked duck with green olives, Herbes de Provence and spiced couscous or shiitake and black olive scallopine with artichokes and capers.

Wine Enthusiast
A multifaceted, characterful bottling from Australia's coolest winemaking region, this Pinot opens on the medicinal, sappy side, with sassafras root, cherry cordial, violet and roses on their stems, and a slight charred-meat nuance. The palate is medium in weight, simultaneously earthy, tangy, fruity and savory, with some whole bunch-derived spice and a grip of well placed tannins. A mutable wine that will likely offer a multitude of personalities over the years. Drink now–2030.

Dalrymple Vineyards, Australia
Dalrymple Vineyards Winery Image

Dalrymple Vineyards was established by Bertel and Anne Sundstrup in 1987. They were visionaries, travelling to France for inspiration and guidance. Situated in the heart of the highly acclaimed Pipers River region of northeast Tasmania, almost equidistant from Launceston, Scottsdale and George Town, the Sundstrups planted their vines on sloping hills that overlook Bass Strait – the wild sea separating Tasmania from the mainland. Pipers River, Tamar Valley, where the good stuff grows. Imagine – bald, windswept hills, ancient gums leaning at angles, roaring north west gales and sideways rain, fluttering wildflowers, wheeling eagles. This is wild country. A place of vivid greens, basalt browns, daffodil yellow and cornflower blues. A place where we co-exist with nature and the land. When it comes to Dalrymple Vineyards, there are four stories to be told. Our vineyards. Lean natural acidity matches with intense flavors from root to grape, soil to sunshine. Our growers. Our team of hardworking men and women, who grow and tend to our grapes with precision and care. Our vigneron. Peter Caldwell and his passion for Pinot Noir, which he carefully crushes, ferments and separates into various distinct barrels to produce wines of elegance and expression. Our wines. Complex characters, weight, texture, and flavor come together before bottling and mature in our cellar; developing, growing, and creating a personality.

Directly south of the city of Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula wine region, the cool-climate island of Tasmania has earned an honorable reputation as the country’s finest producer of Sparkling Wine. Naturally the region also excels in top quality still wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling, all distinguished because of a high natural acidity. Most of the Tasmania vineyards cluster around the eastern side of the island from north to south.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
