The Wine

This is the second vintage of the Devils Corner Resolution Pinot Noir. It is a great addition to the Devils Corner range and showcases some of the best Tasmanian Pinot Noir. A full bodied style of Pinot Noir showing blackberry, sour cherry and hints of cedar from the quality French oak. The wine displays a juicy fruit driven middle palate with a crisp savoury texture and fine grained tannins. Given the wines depth and structure it is well worth putting some away in the cellar and looking at it again in 5 to 8 years.

The Grape Variety

The Devil’s Corner Resolution Pinot Noir is sourced mainly from our east coast Hazards Vineyard (95%) with the balance coming from the Tamar Valley. The Hazards vineyard produces wines of depth and intensity. The 2014 vintage was low yielding with high levels of colour and intensity as a result of several climatic influences extending back as far as 18 months prior to vintage. The fruit was cold soaked and plunged twice a day until ferment was started. This was done with partial whole bunches. Hand plunged in open top fermenters, and up to 6 times a day in the middle part of the ferment. Ferment temperatures around 30ºC. Basket pressed and settled for 48 hours then transferred to French oak of which 30% was new. It was bottled with an alcohol of 13.0% a T.A. of 5.6g/l and a pH of 3.66.
