Expert Reviews

Firm apple, mineral flavours; long palate, bone dry finish. Rating 91, Highly Recommended - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion Edition 2009

Lively floral aromatics lift out the glass, with more of that floral intensity running through the length of the palate and lingering on the finish. Winestate (01/FEB/2011)

The best Tasmanian rieslings can offer a deliciously appetising, rather Germanic personality. This wine has it, with a steely nose of tart green fruit, citrus, herb and slatey elements, and it tastes refined, tangy, long and finely textured. A zippy Euro-style that should improve... Ralph Kyte-Powell (26/OCT/2010)

A traditional dry Riesling style with lemon sherbet, ginger spice and lime-leaf aromas and flavours, fairly tight and a touch austere at this stage. Needs a little time yet.Graeme Phillips, Sunday Tasmanian (01/AUG/2010)

Quite lifted aromatics with hints of stonefruit and blossoms. Mario Vinciguerra, National Liquor News (01/MAY/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright, pale straw with tinges of green.

Aroma

Vibrant aromas of lemon zest with hints of citrus blossum, a little limejuice and minerally edge.

Palate

This is a steely style with a rush of lemon/lime acidity dominating a palate that is mouthwateringly dry. There is plenty of fruit up-front and a good length and persistence hinting at a wine that will develop and soften with time in the bottle.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Tasmania continues to grow in stature as the centre of cool climate viticulture in Australia, renowned for the quality of its aromatic white wines, complex sparkling styles and textured Pinot Noir. The distinctive Devil’s Corner range is distinguished by three vital factors - its pure, cool climate characteristics, its accessibility in both price and style and its 100% sourcing from Tasmania’s Tamar Valley, one of the best and most versatile cool climate wine regions in Australia. With the varietal focus on Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay and meticulous care in both the vineyard and winery, the Devil’s Corner range offers a great introduction into the tastes and flavours of Tasmania.
