Brightly coloured with youthful purple tones and a strongly perfumed style of spicy black cherry, dark fruits and raspberries. The mid palate is juicy and fruity with soft, ripe tannins and fresh acidity leaving a finish of spicy dark fruits. This Tasmanian cool climate Pinot Noir is made as a fruit-driven drink-now style with full flavours and will drink well for a further three years.
Great wines begin in the vineyard and it is the quality fruit grown at the Kayena Vineyard that form the foundation of the Tamar Ridge and Devil’s Corner range of wines. Located on the western banks of the Tamar River, forty kilometres north of Launceston, the Kayena Vineyard is planted to a range of cool climate varieties including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Their vision is to produce premium quality wines highlighting the flavour, structure and elegance that are the hallmarks of true Tasmanian cool climate winemaking.
