Devilish thinking is not only encouraged, but celebrated at Devil's Lair. The Hidden Cave range is all about the established style of wines that Margaret River does best, cannily crafted with a slightly devilish twist. The viticultural team are charged each year, with the mission of assembling the finest Margaret River harvests to fashion articulate regional wines. Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are treated to a crush and term of cold soak, inoculated in controlled fermenters and vinified at closely managed temperatures. Upon completion of ferments and a course of malolactic, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
Rich purple with garnet hues. A nose that's instantly recognisable as Margaret River, cassis and cigar box notes, black and blue berries. A currant and brambleberry flavoured palate, fine elegant tannins are woven around a core of sweet black cherries and cassis. A wine that evolves in the glass as layers of fruit awaken. A lingering spice on the intensely aromatic, berry filled finish.
