Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay 2016

A unique plot of land in the Pipers River region in North East Tasmania. Vigneron is the affable Pete Caldwell.

Dalrymple, Cave Block, Chardonnay, Pipers River, 2016


Sweet oak over lime zest citrus, white peach/stonefruit skin with a touch of nougat and some flint strike sulfides. A wine with depth and presence yet without arrogance or extroversion. The citrus lime and Tas signature acidity cuts sharp, the roundness of the oak and the vintage like a comforter. A deeper, richer expression but the class is apparent.

RRP: $38
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 18/20
