Vineyards were first established in Tasmania during colonial settlement. Only in relatively recent years, however, has viticulture emerged in the beautiful Tamar Valley to forge a reputation for varietal and sparkling wines of the highest quality.
In less than a decade Tamar Ridge Wines has established its own acclaimed success story as part of Tasmania’s modern wine industry. The first vines were planted at Tamar Ridge in 1994, and the first vintage was released five years later in 1999. The company continues to grow strongly and is today a leading producer of Tasmanian cool climate table wines with sales in every Australian state and a growing list of export markets.
The Devil’s Corner is a section of the Tamar River near their Kayena Vineyard. It is a calm area of refuge for sailors away from the potentially wild waters of Whirlpool Reach to the south, and has been used as such for over 200 years.
Devil’s Corner wines are pure, crisp and refreshing, displaying vibrant fruit qualities and great drink-ability. Wines to be savored now rather than cellared.
"Made from a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay grapes from selected sites in our Tamar Valley vineyards. It contains a blend of parcels of wine from several vintages each contributing its own subtle layer of flavour and complexity. Initial fermentation took place in stainless steel tank under strict temperature control to allow us to retain maximum fruit aroma and flavour. Secondary ferment also took place in tank and the wine was then bottled under pressure to protect its lively sparkle. This method delivers bright, fresh fruit characters without the intrusion of flavours and aromas derived from yeast lees. Fresh, lively and ready to enjoy without any need for further cellaring. This is an aperitif style that could be served with a wide range of canapes. Try it with a platter of fresh Tassie oysters or just enjoy it on its own to savour its refreshing delicacy."- Tamar Ridge Wines.
