Orchard-fruit aromatics lead the way, with ripe green apple, pear, and nectarine, along with some riper tropical-fruit notes of honeydew, cantaloupe, and guava. It's citrusy and bright, with fresh lemon zest and a hint of freshly-washed linen, with just a touch of nuttiness from the oak.
Medium-bodied on the palate, Devil's Corner Chardonnay has zesty acidity that makes it feel much lighter than it actually is. Let it warm up a touch in the glass, and you'll be rewarded with a depth of texture and nuance, along with hints of orange blossom and sun-dried hay that compliment the ripe peach and pear flavours of the wine.
Match with butter-poached halibut with lemon and thyme that will echo the notes of citrus and fresh herbs in the wine, or try with an appetizer of Camembert and granny smith apple.
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.
A soft, fruity aroma with floral undertones. Similar to a peach or apricot, but honey-heavy!
Sweet and fruity, with a particular flavour/scent that resembles persimmons
2022 - 2025
Tasmania is one of Australia's most exciting up-and-coming fine wine regions, so we were thrilled to discover the wines of Devil's Corner. Named after a particularly rough patch of ocean off their home on the east coast of Tasmania, Devil's Corner focuses on what have become the signature grape varieties of the region: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Since the island is much cooler temperature-wise than the Australian mainland, it's the perfect spot for these cool-climate grapes to thrive.
Winemaker Tom Wallace capitalizes on the long growing season of coastal Tasmania to coax grapes to full maturity while retaining their all-important acidity. Their Chardonnay is more reminiscent of Chablis than new-world styles from California, and a light touch of oak adds depth without overwhelming the fruit. Enjoy this delicious expression of Tassie Chardonnay over the next 2-3 years at about 12 C.
