Dalrymple Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Pipers Brook Tasmania
Nestled in a cocoon of mixed vegetation and rolling hills, Dalrymple enjoys a unique and seductive aspect shared by only a few boutique vineyards within the Pipers River region. This succulent and fresh, exclusively Pipers Brook Pinot Noir is fashioned from grapes that are chosen for their juicy flavours of ripe red berries, raspberry and plum. A natural ferment is encouraged and Burgundian techniques are applied, culminating in a complex yet harmonious wine that sings of fresh fruit and offers supple, velvety textures, built to be fully approachable while young.
Available in cartons of six
Case of 6
$227.50
Each block of Pinot Noir from the Dalrymple Vineyard and choice grower sites is hand picked and kept separate throughout the winemaking. Low bunch numbers and medium bunch weights, a perfect vine balance that translates into perfect fruit. Some blocks are divided into smaller parcels thereby maximising options at assemblage. A number of traditional techniques are employed, hand sorting the fruit, cold soaking, whole bunch inclusion, hand plunging and wild ferments, all designed to create wines that combine fruit intensity with layers of texture and persistent varietal character. The finished Dalrymple is aged for up to a year in a mix of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques.
Vibrant dark rose petal colour. Perfumed nose of rose petals and lavender, fresh strawberries and raspberry complemented by pomegranates and rosewater. The fruit is supported by delicate spice and dried savoury herbs, the oak is balanced and sweet. A warming, vibrant palate offering fleshy red cherry characters and mouth filling textures. Seductive and creamy, balanced by supple tannins and charming natural acidity.
