Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay 2020
Region: Tasmania, Australia
Bottle size: 75cl
Initial savoury notes lift to reveal peach, nectarine, nougat and roasted cashews. Stonefruit on the palate is beautifully contained within the framework of natural acidity that has a saline edge due to the coastal location of the vineyard. Fine French oak and lees contact adds further texture and length that persists with lingering freshness typical of the Cave Block terroir.
Tasmania's rugged coastal beauty and cool climate terrain first ignited a passionate pursuit to craft the perfect single site wines back in 1987, well before the rest of the world caught on. Such inspired the founding of Dalrymple Vineyards on the sloping hills of Pipers River, overlooking Bass Strait.
