Dalrymple-Pinot-Noir-Coal-River-Valley-Tasmania-2013

Dalrymple, Pinot Noir ''Coal River Valley'' (Tasmania), 2013

The fruit for this wine was selected from a vineyard just east of Richmond in the Coal River Valley. The small vineyard, planted to clone 114 on its own rootstock in light sandy loam soils, has naturally low vigour and produces wines of very high quality. An immediate wave of Asian spices with some cinnamon and cloves lift from the glass, supported by sour cherries, blood plum flesh and rose petals. Hints of some savoury notes develop over 3 – 4 hours of opening with riper fruit flavours. The richness of the palate ends with a long silky tannin finish; with lift and freshness from a fine acid line, that will allow complexity to build over the next 8-12 years if well cellared.
The winery recommends a food match of kangaroo filet with a beetroot salad. We will take the liberty of translating that to lamb or veal with a beet salad. You will love it.
