Overview

Mostly sourced from a vineyard nestled in the foothills at the top of McMurtrie Road, a small percentage also came from a site at Maslin’s Beach. The fruit from McMurtrie Road delivers the primary line and structure of the wine, while the fruit from Maslin's Beach builds tannin and dept to the wine.

Expert Reviews

Full crimson- purple; a very interesting wine, with more spicy/ savoury characters on both its bouquet and palate; less opulently rich than its cheaper sibling, but has greater length and finesse, those attributes built around the more spicy characters; how this ties in with the alcohol, I have no idea; it doesn't help to be told nothing about these four `12 shirazs. Rating 95 - Drink by 2032, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The Devil's Whiskers displays aromas of spicy blackberry conserve, eucalypt and sweet floral notes integrated with fine French oak.

Palate

Flavours of mixed dark berries inculding mulberry, blackberry, and blueberry pastilles with light citrus notes penetrate the palate. This wine shows great texture with fine fruit tannins complemented by carefully integrated oak.

Food Matching

Roast leg of lamb studded with garlic & rosemary or perfect with wood- even roasted lamb shoulder.
