Dalrymple Vineyards Cave Block Chardonnay 2017
If you want to understand why Tasmanian Chardonnay is taking the world by storm then stop right here as this is a truly stunning example, and superb value. From one of the coldest winegrowing areas in Tasmania, which is well known for its sparkling wines, it explodes with that purity and acid bite that Tasmania brings to its top wines.
It is pale golden in colour and has fantastic tension and vitality – its core of citrus and lime leaf fruits wound up in a blanket of very crisp acidity. Layer after layer of subtle complexity – oatmeal, spicy oak and struck match all adding interest to what is a bright, silky palate. Seamless, long, pure and finely balanced, this is the kind of wine that can take on the world.
