Intro to Dalrymple Chardonnay Tasmania –
Dalrymple Chardonnay from Tasmania Australia is a fresh and vibrant with aromas of lemongrass, honeydew, peach skin and pineapple with hints of crushed hazelnuts adding complexity. The palate is juicy with fresh melon and paw paw.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The fruit for the Dalrymple Chardonnay from Tasmania was hand-picked and after fermentation was matured in French oak barrels sourced from six different cooperages. Barrel rolling was employed to ensure light lees contact for texture while malolactic fermentation naturally adjusted acidity for balance and structure.
The wine has a bright, light straw colour and an aroma of fresh cut nectarines, white petal, ginger and hints of coriander seed and five spice. Powerful stone fruits are immediately apparent on the palate with fresh lime juice acidity giving a linear note. Subtle complex spices from the French oak and a mouthfilling texture develop after opening.
The producer –
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.
When it comes to our wine, there are four stories to be told –
Our vineyards. Lean natural acidity matches with intense flavours 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 flavour come together before bottling and mature in our cellar; developing, growing, and creating a personality.
