Now in its 14th edition, The 2015 West Australian Wine Guide is the definitive guide on West Australian wine, written by leading Australian wine writer, Ray Jordan. First published in 2002, this annual wine guide is includes more than 800 reviews and covers the breadth and beauty of West Australia’s finest producers and their wines.
On the 2011 Devil’s Lair 9th Chamber Chardonnay, Ray Jordan noted: “What impresses me most is the ability to capture the elegance of the variety while losing nothing of Margaret River’s lingering persistence and intensity.”
Devil’s Lair’s new Chief Winemaker, Ben Miller, said it was an honour to receive this award and it reflected the distinctive style of Chardonnay that Devil’s Lair champions.
“The Devil’s Lair approach to Chardonnay is about capturing the right balance between elegance and fruit. 9th Chamber is only made in the very best vintages – it’s the best expression of Devil’s Lair in Margaret River and a representation of our best vineyards and vintages,” Ben said.
