As the Tamar River weaves through Tasmania's beautiful landscape, there's a particular bend in the river where the going is treacherous and the land becomes hostile. Explorers named this bend the Devil's Corner – which this winery is named after – and the reward for braving these hazards was an amazing sanctuary harbouring the perfect cool climate and terroir to create Tasmania’s famous wines.
The Devil's Corner winery is rated “5-stars” by top Oz wine critic James Halliday, who also awarded this Chardonnay and glowing 95-point score
2016 saw consistent ripening conditions free of extremes, this produced very high-quality fruit, concentrated in flavour and character
Grapes were carefully hand-harvested to ensure a high quality of fruit, then fermented and matured in oak barrels for add texture and richer complexity
Tasting note: Lifted aromas of white peach and delicate pear with notes of creamy oak. The palate is bright and complex with excellent persistence of flavour through to the long finish.
