Delamere Vineyards

DELAMERE VINEYARDS | Piper’s River, Tasmania, Australia

“Outstanding” 5-star rated winery, James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2017

Delamere Vineyards were planted in 1982 in the Pipers River region in northeast Tasmania making it one of the oldest plantings not only in the region but in Tasmania. They have 6.5ha under vine and its age makes it a rare resource in Tasmania. The ironstone rich soils are perfectly suited to the cultivars of pinot noir and chardonnay, and was established in the traditional French design used in Burgundy and Champagne. The deep red Ferrosol soils offer great fertility, excess water drainage and moisture retention, meaning that irrigation is not required.

The vineyard is densely planted (7500 vines per ha) and has a vertical shoot position trellis system with a very low fruiting wire, some 60cm off the ground. The low yield per vine and the reflective heat from the ground produces wines with superior depth of flavour and ripe well-developed tannins. Vine age and subsequent natural balance are key factors in the consistent production of wines with great structure and harmony.
