Overview

The Devil’s Whiskers are the two little marks that appear around the top lips of some people when they drink red wine – even just one glass.

The conditions leading up to the 2011 vintage were extremely favourable with some of the best rainfall seen for more than a decade. The summer was mild early, reminiscent of 2002 and 2004. The season’s vintage was against trend with budburst, flowering and harvest starting about 3 weeks later than average. Whilst most Australian wine regions experienced widespread rain during the summer it was later coming to McLaren Vale. As a result we managed to bring in our premium parcels of Shiraz, Cabernet and Chardonnay early and before the rain. These parcels have produced exceptional wines.

Expert Reviews

Deep colour, with abundant layers of black fruit, sage, bramble and mocha on the bouquet; the palate is full blooded, dense and dark with fresh acidity providing lift to the ample fruit on display; a long and muscular finish. Rating 90 - Drink by 2018, Ben Edwards, Wine Companion (FEB/2013)
