Description

 

We often think of certain wine styles coming from specific countries or regions – well with this case we turn some of those ideas on their head:

It contains one bottle of each of the following:

  • Devils Corner Sauvignon from Tasmania –  from vineyards located in  on a hilltop looking over Tasmania’s Tamar Valley and the East Coast of the island.  Intrepid sailors navigating Tasmania’s Tamar River discovered a treacherous bend and named it Devil’s Corner nad here sits the winery. The aroma of this wine is fresh cut grass, asparagus and tomato leaf with hints of passionfruit and citrus. The passionfruit flows through to the palate with delicate fruit sweetness and crisp acidity. Overall a wine that is bursting with flavour while leading to a finish that is crisp and refreshing.
  • Devils Corner Pinot Noir  also from Tasmania: this is a very fruit-driven style of Pinot, made from grapes sourced from a multitude of vineyard sites on the north and east of the island. Ripe morello cherry and strawberry notes combine with silky, soft tannins and a fresh, crisp finish. It’s featured in both Matthew Jukes’ and The Wine Merchant’s Top 100 Wines and scored 91 points in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2018.
  • Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut from South Africa: a sparkling wine made using the traditional methode known as Cap Classique in South Africa.  This elegant wine has a light golden hue, with fine persistent “mousse” and aromas of white peach, fresh apple and pear. On the palate, stone fruit flavours are beautifully complimented by hints of citrus and raspberries. Lively acidity and a crisp, dry finish contributes to an elegant Cap Classique.
  • Jordans Real McCoy Riesling from South Africa: not a grape variety nornally associated with South Africa: iIntense lemon-lime flavours through to white peach and Granny Smith apple. Crisp fruitiness with a perfect balance of acidity and residual sugar.
  • Ataraxia Chardonnay from South Africa: a fabulous chardonnay with all the creaminess you want with its Burgundy-style mineral acidity is beautifully balanced by a subtle yet compelling intensity of fruit. A classic length, creaminess and intriguing complexity defines this stylish, world class Chardonnay
  • Vicentin Blanc de Malbec from Argentina: yes, a white malbec!  A superb white wine made from Malbec grapes, where the grapes are gently pressed to avoid contact with the colour in the skins,  full of fragrant floral notes, mulberry fruit and strawberries, combined with aromas of cinnamon and cloves. A full bodied white with a lovely, long finish.
