Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay 2018

The top Chardonnay here from Dalrymple. The Cave Block is a unique plot of land in the Pipers River region in North East Tasmania. Vigneron is the talented and welcoming Pete Caldwell.

Dalrymple, Cave Block, Chardonnay, Pipers River, 2018

Marzipan and nougat richness over vanilla oak, flinty funk, chopped peach, lemon myrtle and gum blossom, and cashew spread. Layered and textural. Power, with drive. Peach and citrus depth with prickles of fine spice and briny oyster shell over an electrified steel spine of acidity. Another stellar release that will develop over many years. Bargain.

RRP: $38
Alc: 13%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
