Deviation Road produces exciting cool climate wines from mature vineyard sources in the Adelaide Hills. Owners Hamish and Kate Laurie continue a five generation winemaking tradition. Devoted to the high altitude sites of the Adelaide Hills and with Kate’s French oenology training, the wines they produce are both traditional and contemporary.
With a fiery passion to create premium bottle fermented and aged Australian sparkling wines together with textural, aromatic wines that can genuinely cellar, their signature style is restrained, elegant and balanced. All of their wines are hand-crafted using traditional wine making techniques and are vegan friendly.
This cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay is undervalued and underrated by Wine Spectator at just 89 points – “Crisp and mouthwatering, with sleek melon, pomelo and lime zest flavors that show a touch of saline and Meyer lemon notes. Ends with a touch of fresh grated ginger on the finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made, 150 cases imported.” — MW
