Tasting Notes

The Adelaide Hills experienced another exceptional vintage on the back of one of the best ever in 2021. A wet winter and spring, followed by a dry and mild summer created a long ripening period which led to excellent flavour development whilst maintaining natural acidity. Harvested by machine in the cool of the morning when the fruit is at its freshest, the grapes are then crushed and lightly pressed with only the free run juice collected. The juice is then allowed to settle for a couple of days, followed by racking and fermentation for 10 – 12 days. The wine spends 3 months in 2- and 3-year-old French oak puncheons for some subtle complexity.

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.
