Wine Summary Image

With a unique combination of climate (maritime), geography and geology, Devil’s Lair celebrates wines of great clarity, delicacy of fruit and elegant structure. The philosophy of Devil’s Lair is to make wines that define the region, respect the variety and above all, make complex, interesting wines. The Devil’s Lair Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity from the terroir of individual vineyards and the winemakers handle and blend each batch of fruit to make a wine that best represents the Devil’s Lair style.

Gravelly, fine-grained tannins are a hallmark of a great Devil's Lair Cabernet. Skins slowly soften during fermentation and maturation for two years in the finest oak, giving the wine a dark core of fruit, wrapped tightly in a fine cloak of chocolaty tannin.

Expert Reviews

Bright crimson; an extremely elegant and fine cabernet, with fruit, oak and tannins in perfect balance; the medium-bodied palate is very long, the blackcurrant and black olive fruit lingering in the mouth long after the wine has been swallowed. Top gold Margaret River Wine Show ’10 in one of the blue ribbon (71 wines) classes.

Rating 96 - Drink by 2029 James Halliady, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Good depth of colour with vibrant purple hues.

Aroma

Layered and complex. A compote of fragrant fruit florals typical of Margaret River. Hints of cigar-box and melted dark chocolate.

Palate

Classic Cabernet cassis sits alongside smokey spicy oak. The palate has depth of flavour - roasted cocoa beans and freshly picked blackcurrants dominate the mid palate. The tannins from the Merlot component provides silky texture and length. This wine is concentrated yet elegant. A classic Margaret River wine from a classic vintage.

About  Devil's Lair

It seems that Devil's Lair was destined to be Margaret River's most mysterious and alluring estate. The name is taken from a local cave which itself was named after the Tasmanian Devil and where fossilised skeleton of a complete Tasmanian Tiger was found with a mysterious extra or fifth leg. To this day the exact location of the cave is a guarded secret.

Vineyard

Devil's Lair's Vineyards are approximately 17km south of the Margaret River township and are amongst the coolest and most southerly vineyard in the region. As such we are one of the latest wineries to harvest our fruit to allow full flavour development, but not excessive sweetness and alcohol.

Wines from the Devil's Lair label include the highly regarded Devil's Lair Margaret River Chardonnay, and the Devil's Lair Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Environment

The natural environment is what makes Devil's Lair a unique place. To make the best possible wines and to safeguard the site for future generations, we work to preserve our water resource, our soil systems and the native biodiversity of the Estate.

"Sustainable viticulture is our guiding principle, a medium between conventional viticulture and organic viticulture. It influences the way we manage our ecology, our soil health, weeds, insects, disease and water." -Simon Robertson, our long time viticulturalist.

We avoid using chemical fertilisers, herbicides and chemical insecticides where possible. Now we use organic fertilisers such as basalt, carbon fines, seaweed based compost, natural rock phosphate.

The Devil's Lair Estate is only half planted to vineyards, the remainder is native bushland. We have undertaken revegetation programs to ensure regeneration of low lying flora and preserve and renew native species such as frogs, birds and insects.
