|Aroma & Palate||Fruit and nut chocolate, watermelon, cardamom|
|Style||I love it when a wine comes together|
A little older than its fresh-faced brother-from-the-same-varietal this month, with appropriately more preserved fruit coming through.
Fruit ‘n’ nut chocolate on the nose, watermelon and sweet cherry throughout, brown cardamom on the finish, a general high-intensity stewed thing going on but with enough vibrancy that it feels pulled rather than mashed together.
From The Winemaker
On first inspections, this Pinot radiates bright fresh cherries, red summer fruit of strawberry and raspberry, along with crunchy watermelon. Take a closer look, and the wine rewards you with woven twills of autumnal forest floor, herbs and dried twigs, with a touch of earthy spice.
The lighter framed structure gives rise to a crunchy acid core that adds spine and excitement.
Complex notes of forest floor, boiled lolly, cherries and spice sit tight against a line of ultra-fine tannin. This palate is skilfully fruit focused, and with a long silky finish.
About the Winery
The Saint and the Scholar are winemakers Stephen Dew and Reid Bosward respectively, nicknamed for their friendly and thoughtful dispositions respectively.
The recent establishment of a cellar door at Adelaide Hills fine dining institution Maximillian’s has provided the growing operation with a spectacular public face and the opportunity for all sorts of unusual promotions.
