Dalrymple Pinot Noir 2019
Immediate lift of charred spices, black plum and Dutch liquorice, with hints of black olive, cranberries, blueberries and cassis adding complexity. A sense of lightness and freshness to the array of characters that give an elegance to the style and vintage. Richness of fruit on the palate is balanced by bright natural acidity and fine tannins. Hints of savouriness and earthiness from the whole bunch component provide further complexity through the palate and elegant finish. A harmonious wine that will reward cellaring for 3 – 5 years.
This Vegan friendly Pinot Noir is a blend of parcels from Dalrymple's own vineyards at Pipers River, Coal River Valley and growers at Swansea and Ouse. Each of these sites is unique with distinctive individual terroirs, building complexity into the final wine blend.

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Apart from being the most southerly wine region in Australia, Tasmania has among the coolest growing subregions with the potential to make distinctly different wines than in the rest of the country.
Most well known for cool-climate varietals like Pinot noir and Chardonnay (thus sparkling too), Sauvignon Blanc smaller plantings of Riesling, Cabernet and Pinot Gris (more commonly Pinot labelled Pinot Grigio)
Historically, Tasmania can lay claim to being the founder of both the Victorian and South Australian wine industries as William Henty sailed from Launceston to Portland (in Victoria) in 1834 and planted grape cuttings there. Though not conclusively proven, it's believed that John Hack planted vines in South Australia in 1837, closely followed in 1838 by John Reynell.
Warmer vintages (possibly attributable to global warming) has had positive effects on region's industry, allowing grapes in recent vintages to achieve full phenolic ripeness, making for vibrant wines that have been widely accepted as world class.

About the brand Dalrymple Vineyards
Dalrymple Vineyards was established by Bertel and Anne Sundstrup in Pipers Brook 1987 (with the vineyard and brand acquired by Hill-Smith Family Vineyards in late 2007). Plantings are split between pinot noir and sauvignon blanc, and the wines are made at Janis Tasmania.
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 sea strait separating Tasmania from mainland Australia.
Nowadays Dalrymple Vineyards is in the safe hands of Vigneron Peter Cladwell (since 2010). Tasmanian through-and-through, Peter started his career at Roseworthy Agricultural College in South Australia before serving his apprenticeship in many iconic wine producing appellations such as Burgundy and Bordeaux, California and New Zealand.
