Devil's Lair Chardonnay Margaret River 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker’s tasting notes: "Pale straw with lime green hues; a complex amalgam of roasted cashews, pear essence and pink grapefruit; subtle notes of lanolin and minerals add further complexity; oak influence is subtle; a brightly fruity, yet concentrated and complex wine; concentrated grapefruit and pear flavours on the front palate, with a long citrus finish; tight and focussed, showing a superb mineral acidity on the finish; has great length and persistence, but is still years from showing its potential volume and breadth of flavours".

This strongly maritime-influenced climate is not dissimilar to Bordeaux in a dry vintage; hence the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Read less
