Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 91/100
Juicy and balanced and elegant. Supple, silky, seductive: doesn't taste like 14% alcohol. Elegant and with finesse. Aromas of almost tart cherry, dried tobacco and happiness.
Pinot Noir food pairings: roasted pork loin, prime rib, roast beef, mushroom and truffle dishes, coq au vin.

|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Spicy, savoury, cherry and lavender. I might even go as far as soapy - like Thrills gum! This Pinot Noir is full of intrigue like a great mystery novel. Brilliant pale ruby in the glass and light-bodied. Mild tannins with medium+ acidity. Not an overly long finish but very pleasant. Drink now. Pair with lighter white meats such as poultry, pork, mild game meats.
Tasted: January 2015

BROWN BROTHERS, Tasmania, Australia
2013 DEVIL’S CORNER PINOT NOIR
From the Winery:
At Brown Brothers we have tradition but we are not the traditional wine company. We are steeped in our family heritage and we have a history of innovation that inspires our future direction.
Brown Brothers is one of Australia’s leading family-owned wine companies, with the family making wine in Victoria for over 120 years.
Founded in 1889 by John Francis Brown, it was under the guidance of his son, John Charles Brown that Brown Brothers established its reputation as a producer willing to experiment with innovative grape varieties. This experimentation and sense of adventure carries across the whole business and can be seen at our cellar doors from Milawa to Tasmania.
The Brown family is proud to have forged a reputation, locally and abroad, as varietal wine specialists and winemaking innovators. Over the years we’ve seen many changes in the Australian Wine industry, yet the cornerstones of Brown Brothers remain constant. We’re still a family business; still hand-crafting wines.
My Tasting Notes:
88 Points: The Devil’s Corner Pinot Noir is bright purple in colour and has youthful aromas of cherries, blueberries and raspberries. There is a semi-sweet to tart cherry and grippy acidity that tighten up in the finish. The wine has very good structure, crisp (acidity) and dry (tannins). The Devil’s Corner is best consumed with food pairing partners such as rack of lamb, braised pork belly or Chinese BBQ duck. This is one of the first an un oaked Pinot Noir I have tried.
This vintage should be consumed now and for the next 4 to 5 years.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Appellation: The Hazards Vineyard
Sweetness Level: Dry (00)
