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.
Apple blossom and white peach are coerced from the glass with hints of crushed caper and cinnamon. Fresh quince and Asian spices add to the complexity. Fresh citrus and melon flavours are balanced with a fine fleshy texture and fine acidity. The subtle spice derived from the French barriques adds complexity as well as structure through the palate and into a clean fresh finish. Enjoy with Freshly shucked oysters
