Wine critic James Halliday has selected Devil's Lair in his annual list of Australia's Top 100 Wins.

One of Australia's most respected wine writers, James included our 2018 Dance With The Devil Chardonnay in his list of 20 wines under $25.

In his list for The Australian, James described the wine as "exceptional", and awarded a score of 95 points out of 100.

"It's length and balance are spot on, the pink grapefruit and white peach add another layer to dance with," he wrote.

Tasting Talent Rewarded

1 October 2019

The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) announced this week that Matt Godfrey, winemaker at Devil’s Lair in Margaret River, WA, was the dux of the 40th Advanced Wine Assessment Course.

As dux, Matt has accepted a place as an associate judge at the 2019 Royal Adelaide Wine Show, where judging is currently in progress.

After the dux announcement, Matt commented: "Participating in AWAC was a great opportunity to meet some fantastic people from many realms of the wine industry. Assessing and discussing wines alongside such a talented and diverse group was a great way to calibrate my skills and further my knowledge of wine.

"The high diversity of wines judged throughout AWAC is unique and a great challenge for anyone who gets the opportunity to participate. The AWAC gave me confidence in my consistency of wine assessment and the opportunity to learn from the panels of industry leaders."

The selection of the dux of each course is based on statistical scores, verbal skills and group interaction.
