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..

Ronald Angas planted the distinguished Edelstone Vineyard in 1912. The forty acre site was planted to Shiraz vines, probably sourced through Joseph Gilbert at Pewsey Vale. The original pre-phylloxera material most likely originated from the James Busby selection, which was propagated by Samuel Smith of Yalumba in the 1850s. Whilst planted purely as a Shiraz vineyard, there have been found ten rogue vines of bastardo. The anthocyanins in the berries at Mount Edelstone are very high which indicates the superior quality of Shiraz. The finished wine is matured in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for eighteen months prior to assemblage.
Deep crimson with purple hue. Powerful, ripe aromas of blackberry and plum, complexing hints of star anise, ferns, eucalypt and dark chocolate. Dense, ripe and rich, with a lush texture and ripe, licorice tinged fruit. The palate is an intense and concentrated blend of sweet, juicy plum pudding fruit and structured ripe tannin. With mouthfilling power, seamless texture and lingering finish, displaying the exquisite singularity of Mount Edelstone vineyard.
