2021 Saint & Scholar Pinot Noir

12 x 750ml
Perfumed and highly scented aromas are immediately captivating – a mix of strawberry and raspberry nuances. Then the palate delivers in a light body but there is fruit intensity and structure from tight chalky tannin and a fine understated oak influence. It’s smooth and almost succulent with a sustained finish. Nice Pinot for the short term. Read more

Tasting Notes

The 2021 vintage was almost perfect, with a long, cool growing season, plenty of rain falling at the right time and slow ripening conditions resulting in flavoursome berry development. This single vineyard Pinot Noir was harvested in the cool of the morning, crushed and cold soaked for 12 hours. After warming the wine, yeast was added, with the ferment pumped over as required for 7 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed to tank with half going into French oak barriques and the balance kept in tank. Lively cherry, strawberry and red berry fruit, fill the palate, finishing with silky tannins and a little hint of sweet spice.

Winemakers Note

Great wine from the Adelaide Hills thanks to the Saint, the Scholar, and the love of grapes. The Saint & Scholar vineyard makes for a beautiful, spectacular backdrop for our makers. North facing and particularly hilly, you’ll see the fluffiest of fluffy clouds float above as the sun sinks across the valley, making you want to stay long after the day is done.
