Fruit was sourced from Dalrymple’s own vineyards at Pipers River and Coal River Valley along with growers in Swansea and Ouse.  Utilising a variety of blocks, different clones and slightly different aspects each of these sites made its own unique contribution to the final blend. The cooler northern maritime location at Pipers River produces Pinot Noir that is focused and structured, while the Coal River Valley in the south adds texture and softness to the mid-palate. Five to twenty five percent whole bunches were included depending on the site and maturation took place in French oak barriques (20% new) for a period of 9 months.
Dark red in colour with black shaded edges and a light red hue. Exceptionally perfumed the nose features a wonderful array of violet, dark cherry, strawberry and subtle anise aromas followed by some forest floor, fresh herb and delicate spicy cedar notes. Seductive red to dark cherry and strawberry fruits are sprawled across the palate with great power and intensity. Notions of forest floor, delicate anise, infusions of fresh herbs and spicy cedar linger through the finish. Supple in its texture with silky smooth tannins and a complimentary freshness it concludes long and expansive.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
