Devil’s Corner Cellar Door
The Tasman Highway along Tasmania’s east coast is pleasantly lined with vineyards on both sides. Reach the crest in Apslawn and you’ll be greeted with an award-winning, architecturally designed tower overlooking the granite mountains of the Freycinet Peninsula. Welcome to Devil’s Corner Cellar Door.
Brown Brothers purchased a handful of smaller Tasmanian vineyards in 2010, including Devil’s Corner. Since then, the cellar door has transformed into one of the most-visited east coast wineries. It’s easy to see why. The panoramic views are spectacular and there are two dining options within the estate.
Wines to sample include chardonnay, pinot grigio, riesling, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir and chardonnay cuvee. The standout is the Mt Amos pinot noir, a robust 2015 vintage with a fruit-driven palate and fine tannins. Share it while overlooking the valley below or bring a bottle home and cellar it for six to 10 years.
The cellar door is designed for lengthy visits. Order a dozen oysters from The Fisher’s, which gets its seafood from Freycinet Marine Farm; or a pizza straight from the wood-fired oven at Tombolo Cafe. Espresso and gelato are also available.
