Growing Conditions: The Devil’s Corner Pinot Noir is sourced primarily from our Hazards vineyard located on Tasmania’s East Coast.
The 2018 saw long slow ripening conditions producing very high-quality Pinot Noir fruit for table wine, concentrated in colour and in character, and able to be harvested at only moderate potential alcohol yet with full flavour and ripeness.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking notes: The fruit was crushed and fermented on skins in static fermenters using an air maceration technique that allows gentle extraction of colour and tannins without overpowering the wine. It was bottled with an alcohol of 13.0% a T.A. of 5.9g/l and a pH of 3.51.
