Unveiling the Mystery

Wine is a subtle communicator, whispering its origins and characteristics to those who pay close attention. Let’s unravel the mystery of one particular wine and decipher the messages it holds within.

The Art of Observation

Before taking a sip, let’s indulge our senses visually. This wine presents a pale Ruby color, typical of thin-skinned grape varieties. Its light and translucent hue is a rarity among wines.

Aromatic Whispers

As we approach the glass, delicate aromas fill the air. Raspberry, sweet rose, dried orange peel, and a touch of allspice dance together, captivating our senses. These floral and spice aromas are a testament to the grape variety itself, not influenced by oak aging.

A Symphony of Flavors

Now, it’s time for the moment of truth – the taste test. The wine reveals itself as a light-bodied delight, with subtle tannins and a harmonious balance of acidity. It’s a wine that beckons for a warm evening outdoors, perhaps accompanied by pickles, Brie, and crusty bread. Simple, lovable, and complete.

The Identity Revealed

So, what grape variety is behind this captivating wine? Is it Merlot, Senjouvesse, Grenache, or Pinot Noir? Let’s seek guidance from Christine Marsilio, Master of Wine at Wine Folly.

Pinot Noir, a grape known for its elegance, floralness, and red fruit flavors, unveils its true nature in this wine. It is a global sensation, ranking as the sixth most planted red grape variety. However, it’s selective about its growing conditions – thriving in cooler climates.

The lighter body, fresh fruit flavors, and delicate floral notes confirm that this is a cool climate wine. The high levels of UV radiation suggest a place that basks in the sun. Yet, the alcohol content points to a location influenced by cooling factors, making it geographically distinct. Wine regions with longer growing seasons and higher latitudes gift us this unique combination.

A Pinot Noir Journey

With these clues in hand, where do you think this tantalizing wine is from? Ontario, Canada? Tasmania, Australia? Burgundy, France? Or Napa Valley, California?

Let’s delve deeper and travel to eastern Tasmania with Madeleine, our wine expert. Here, Pinot Noir finds its ideal home, close to the cool Tasman Sea. Devil’s Corner Winery, nestled just steps away from the sea, crafts exceptional wines, like this Devil’s Corner Pinot Noir.

Tasmania is rapidly gaining recognition in the wine world, thanks to its favorable growing conditions for grapes like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wine. So, raise your glass and savor the flavors of Tasmania.
