There is a pronounced earthiness to this wine. Aromas of blue fruits, leather and tobacco on the nose, segue into a myriad of flavours on the palate, including plum, blackberry, spearmint and dark chocolate, all solidly conveyed atop a smoky persistence. The palate is bold, fleshy and yet medium bodied. The fruit was vinified in open fermenters, then gently basket-pressed to create a wine that is fruit driven and concentrated with velvety tannins, needing no fining. Maturation in a combination of French and American Oak Hogsheads has added considerably to the wine's character, balance and complexity. The wine will cellar well for at least 10 years but, for those without that kind of patience, enjoy sooner with red or game meats, rich pasta dishes and fantastic company. As with all our wines, this Shiraz is vegetarian and vegan friendly!

REGION: Relbia, Tasmania.
Tasmania is the buzz place for Australian pinot noir fanciers. While the best from the island edge into the $30 and above price bracket, a couple of names consistently offer value. Devil's Corner and this entry-level version lead the way. It's got structure and body, a little oak adding its weight to cherry noted fruits, and again crunchy and bright.
