Devil’s Corner Riesling is a fresh and appealing wine. On the nose it has splashes of freshly squeezed lime juice as well as lemon blossom. On the palate the wine is vibrant, refreshingly crisp and hugely appealing with loads of zesty citrus. The palate is long and defined running straight down the centre of the tongue to a finish that sings with crisp acidity. Devil’s Corner Riesling is a bright, pale straw colour with tinges of green. The fresh intense flavours and crisp balance of this wine are perfect to enjoy now and over the next 3 to 5 years. It is perfectly paired with foods of asian style. A Vietnamese Chicken Salad or trout with ginger and soy will be a perfect accompaniment to this riesling. It would also be perfect in the sun, outside alongside a plate of oysters.
Riesling produces wines of elegance and fragrance in Germany and France. An extraordinarily versatile variety, it produces wines ranging in style from crisp, delicate and aromatic to luscious, rich sweet dessert styles. It was one of the first varieties to be brought to Australia by European immigrants and is widely planted throughout the country. In areas that enjoy cool ripening conditions, it produces wines of tremendous depth of flavour and elegant structure.
This Riesling is made up of 100% of the varietal with all the grapes coming from the Estate Vineyards which are located in the Tamar Valley and on the East Coast. Upon arriving in the winery, the juice was squeezed and left with no skin contact – it was drained straight off before it was then left to settle in a temperature controlled vat. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control. This was done to maximise the integrity and impact of the vibrant fruit flavours that the Riesling provides.
