Margaret River - Australia
Luke Skeer, Ben Miller
Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon
Devil’s Lair is fortunate to be able to tread its own path, unrestrained by tradition, with a sense of wisdom that comes from a strong bond with an ancient land. It’s the intuition of a talented team, the freedom to do things differently and the subtlety of the soils that makes Devil’s Lair wines respected for their great clarity, delicate fruit flavours and elegant structure.
Lying deep in the south of Margaret River, beyond where most tourists venture, stand towering karri trees resilient and proud, protecting a hidden cave they call the Devil’s Lair.
It’s after this unassuming and somewhat shy cave that Devil’s Lair is named. One of Australia’s most significant archaeological sites, the Devil’s Lair cave holds evidence of human life nearly 50,000 years ago and some of the earliest records of Australian life.
The Devil’s Lair winemaking philosophy is to be meticulous, to continually question and challenge, and to refine a winemaking style that is as much about intuition as it is about science.
