Sauvignon Blanc Tamar Valley Tasmania
Crafted exclusively from choice harvests of Tamar Valley and east coast fruit, the backbone of which originates from the elite Kayena Vineyard, one of Tasmania's smartest renderings of effusive and textural Sauvignon Blanc. Devil's Corner is crafted to an early drinking style, the perfect luncheon white with an affinity for all seafood, mussels and oysters in particular.
From the very outset, Tamar Ridge was built to a different scale than it's sibling wineries and was planned to be the label which would change people's thoughts about Tasmanian wine. A collation of fruit from the premier viticultural precincts of the apple isle is assembled into a crisp and fresh style of Sauvignon Blanc. Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of night and treated to a protective handling. Juices are run off skins immediately after pressing and cold settled to remove most of the solids, a small amount are retained for complexity. The clean, racked juices are fermented in tank under strict temperature controls to maximise the integrity and impact of the vibrant fruit characters.
Bright pale lemon with green tints. Fresh, grassy and appealing with lemon zest aromas showing through. Initial impression on the palate is the characteristic Sauvignon tang of grassy, herbaceous flavours. The palate is long with excellent persistence and subtle asparagus flavours. Overall a wine bursting with gentle fruit flavours that fill the mouth while finishing with a crisp and refreshing zing.
