Tasmanian vineyard Devil’s Corner has today launched its newest addition to its range, Devil’s Corner Fortune Favours Pinot Noir 2021, exclusively with Endeavour Group launching in Dan Murphy’s.
Tasmania is one of the fastest growing wine regions in Australia over the past 12 months says Ben Lafford, Dan Murphy’s red wine category manager:
“We are thrilled to continue to build our premium selection of Tasmanian GI wines with Devil’s Corner Fortune Favours Pinot Noir,” he said.
Endeavour Group is a natural partnership says Devil’s Corner brand manager Tarynn Barrie.
“We share the same goal, to deliver the very best of Tasmanian cool climate wine to shoppers and consumers,” said Barrie.
“The exceptional wines we create at Devil’s Corner wouldn’t exist without the challenges provided by our unique location in Tasmania. Fortune favours the bold. The brave. The determined. It requires an adventurous spirit, and never fighting against the elements, but rather, knowing when to lean into them.”
This is the first release of the Devil’s Corner Fortune Favours Pinot Noir made exclusively for Endeavour Group. The wine has a deep ruby colour with vibrant purple edges. Select parcels of basket-pressed fruit and time maturing in oak barrel give this Pinot Noir a subtle complexity.
On the nose, it shows lifted red currant and cherry fruits, and dried herb spice. The palate is supple and juicy with balanced tannins and acidity.
The new Fortune Favours Pinot Noir is bold yet balanced.
It is nature’s canvas that sets this wine apart – various Pinot Noir clones from the Hazards Vineyard on the East Coast of Tasmania and the Kayena Vineyard in the Tamar Valley says Tom Wallace, Devil’s Corner senior winemaker.
“Tasmania is known for being one of the best places to grow Pinot Noir but we’re also at the mercy of nature in our wild little corner,” he said.
“Thankfully, we’ve learned to lean into the unrelenting and often unpredictable Tassie elements and harness them to create wines worthy of our place.”
The Devil’s Corner Estate Range, Resolution Range and the new Fortune Favours Pinot Noir 2021 is available now at Dan Murphy’s, the Devil’s Corner cellar door and online at devilscorner.com.au.
