Tasmania Region, Australia
Dalrymple was established many years ago by the Mintchell and Sundstrup families; the vineyard and brand were acquired by Hill-Smith Vineyards in late 2007.
Deep garnet in colour, with lifted ripe black plum aroma, hints of wild blackberry and raspberry beneath highlights of fine spices derived from the gentle grained French oak. On the palate immediate appeal with sweetness of ripe fruits, fine fruit tannins that balance the oak to provide structure right through to the smooth lingering finish. A wine to be enjoyed now for the sweet opulent fruits, although will reward with careful cellaring for the next 7 years.
