Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes are sheep herding, river fishing and making smoked goose sausages. The wines of Dalrymple Estate have established a quiet repute amongst devotees of the more elegant Tasmanian styling, enduring exemplars of delicacy, effortless refinement and the most exquisite balance, eloquent of a magnificent terroir...

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

Grapes are all hand picked throughout the cool of early morning, off the Nautilus estate River Vineyard in Awatere Valley at the southern end of Marlborough. It's all hands to the pumps and shoulders to the presses as the team work hard to capture the articulate varietal richness of Marlborough Pinot Gris. Whole bunches are gently pressed before being inoculated with aromatic yeasts for a cool vinification, with a view to preserving the viatl characters of fully ripened grapes on the vine. A small portion may be treated to barrel ferments in seasoned oak, the remainder is held on sedimentery yeast lees for three months, infusing the palate with textural creamyness and contributing wonderful complexity.
Pale straw hue. A fragrant aroma of pears and jasmine spice, bright, ripe, white fleshy stonefruit over apples and pine kernel. The palate is medium bodied and beautifully textured, ample fruit, balance with concentration, orange blossom and mineral nut characters continue toward a soft, dry and lingering finish.
