Delamere Vineyard Sparklings
Winery : Delamere
Delamere, in the small Pipers Brook sub-region of Tasmani,a produces an exceptionally fine range of sparkling wines under the expert guidance of winemakers/vignerons/owners Fran Austin and Shane Holloway.
Delamere 2012 Blanc de Blancs: Michele's notes: Ginger and spice with candied lemon in a complex package. Incredibly fine bead and long finish. Five years on lees for extra flavour development.
Delamere 2014 Vintage Cuvee: Vintage 2014 produced small crops of exceptional quality. Winemaker notes: ' Rich and complex, this wine opens with leatherwood honey and develops through the palate, with stone fruits and fine line of minerality, a lingering and complex finish.'
Delamere NV Cuvee: Winemaker notes: 'The NV Sparkling Cuvée is a blend of vintages with the majority coming from 2014 vintage, with 30% of reserve wine adding complexity and depth. ...fresh apple, citrus and stone fruit flavours of the younger wines... plus flavours of fresh bread, nuts and leatherwood honey from the reserve wines.'
Delamere NV Rose: Winemaker notes: 'Showing true mature Sparkling Rosé characters, it has a pale salmon colour and an aroma of fresh strawberry and musk, complexed by hints of lanolin and toast. But there is an additional layer of complexity from the bottle-aged reserve in this delicious blend.'
