Devil's Corner Riesling
Additional Cases: $0
- Tassie wines are all the rage right now, especially the pinot noirs and rieslings. This is a top value offering from Devils Corner (now owned by the kings of value wines - Brown Brothers). It displays appealing aromatic scents of green citrus, melons and subtle stone fruits, as well as a sniff of light florals. The palate is light and bright with limey flavours, zippy acidity, and a dry, crunchy finish. It's perfect to drink now with a nice chill on it. 80
The nose is fresh and appealing with splashes of freshly squeezed lime juice, a touch of sweet perfume and tropical fruits. On the palate this wine is fresh, crisp and appealing with loads of zesty citrus and lime juice. The palate is long and narrowly defined running straight down the centre of the tongue to a finish that sings with crisp acidity. This Riesling is a bright, pale straw colour with tinges of green. The fresh fruit flavours and crisp balance of this wine are perfect to enjoy now and over the next 2 to 3 years.
Teams well with Asian-inspired flavours such as Vietnamese Chicken Salad or Ocean Trout Spring Rolls with Ginger and Coriander. Riesling of this style is fantastic with pan fried fish fillets that are lightly seasoned and drizzled with lemon or lime juice. The Devils Corner Riesling is also a very good accompaniment with freshly shucked oysters.
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says:“
Tropical nuances to the core of citrus fruits are left field for Tasmania, but make for a very attractive early-drinking style.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says:“
Bright, fresh and fragrant, with a suggestion of exotic tropical fruits, brought into line with fresh-cut apples; the palate is zesty, generous and fine, and while it will travel the distance, is very attractive as a young, drink-early style.Australian Wine Companion 2012 201194
Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says:“
This delves into the yellow stone fruits and tropicals, with very ripe and complete characters - quite Germanic. There's an exotic orange and cumquat flavour, some gentle honeysuckle too; this has a lick of residual sugar and plays into off-dry territory.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says:“
A lifted, exotic bouquet with lime and tropical fruit; the palate is generous and rich with an abundance of sweet fruit coming through on the finish.
