Tasmania's eastern coast produces the renowned Devil's Corner wines, named after a treacherous bend in the river Tamar. This is a very fruit-driven style of Pinot, made from grapes sourced from a multitude of vineyard sites on the north and east of the island. Ripe morello cherry and strawberry notes combine with silky, soft tannins and a fresh, crisp finish. It's featured in both Matthew Jukes' and The Wine Merchant's Top 100 Wines and scored 91 points in James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2018.

Buy this if...you can't say no to New World Pinot.

Unoaked and approachable, with lifted violet aromas and herbal riffs, fresh summer pudding savouriness and velvet tannins.Sarah Ahmed, Decanter - Great value wines for the weekend under £20
Light, fruity, almost gamay-like...This is a red wine you could easily drink with grilled fish. Fiona Beckett, The Guardian

The Producer

Brown Brothers has thrived beyond four generations not just through family loyalty or a vision of the future but also because of the vast expertise in nurturing their vineyards and in making high class wines. 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.

The Winemaker

The winemaking team is headed up by Wendy Cameron, ably assisted by four further winemakers, with New Zealander Tom Wallace overseeing the Tamar Ridge and Devil's Corner winemaking. Tom joined the company in 2010 after a long stint at Villa Maria in New Zealand followed by vintages in the Hunter Valley, Bordeaux and California.

The Region

With vineyards in Victoria and Tasmania, Brown Brothers have an amazing array of parcels with diverse soil types, aspects and micro-climates at their disposal. Australia's original cool-climate wine producing region, the island of Tasmania sits out in the southern Ocean with little between it and the freezing waters of the Antarctic. The majority of the wineries are located on the northern region including the Tamar Valley and the eastern shores, sheltered from the more extreme weather conditions. Wines are classic cool-climate styles with aromatic whites and fresh reds from grapes such as Riesling and Pinot Noir.

Duck glazed with Plum and Soy

A Chinese-inspired duck dish with both fruity and savoury elements needs a smooth, savoury red made from Pinot Noir or Italian varietals such as Barbera. We'd recommend the Devil's Corner Pinot Noir from Tasmania.

Mediterranean Wild Mushroom and Lentil Salad

An easy to prepare mid-week supper on its own or as a side-dish with meat, this warm salad has plenty of gusty flavours which need a supple, silky red with soft tannins. Plump for a Tasmanian Pinot Noir, you won't regret it.

Portuguese Salt Cod

The robust flavour of salt cod with spicy Piri Piri can stand up to a red wine, so no need to match this white fish with a white wine on this occasion - try a fruity, balanced red such as Pinot Noir, the soft tannins stand up to the rich fish and vibrant seasoning.
