Winegrapes tested for smoke taint after months of fires across state

Testing is underway in many of Tasmania's wine grape growing regions to determine if bushfire smoke has impacted fruit quality. Bushfires have been burning in the state's north-west for more than two months, and smoke has drifted hundreds of kilometres. Dalrymple Winery in Pipers River is one of a number of vineyards testing for smoke taint. Winemaker Peter Caldwell started a small batch ferment this week.
