Saint & Scholar RoséRegular price $20.00
|Aroma & Palate||Strawberry, raspberry; creamy palate with confectionary notes|
|Varietal||Pinot Noir Rosé|
|Style||A trip to the lolly shop|
Pale, aromatic & floral in the style of the Provençal rosés that inspired, this Adelaide Hills gem finishes dry with a mouthwatering acidity.
Some really intriguing notes in there - we detect the fairly standard rosé raspberry ones, but also perhaps a hint of artificial banana.
An intriguing wine, firstly boasting a pale salmon colour, closely mimicking the fine Rose wines made out of Provence, France. Like a kid in a candy shop, the Saint and Scholar Rose shows mouth-watering Strawberry and Creams, along with sweet confectionary and fresh summer Raspberries.
All the hallmarks of a quality Rose. One does notice a spring flower, almost herbal note, along with a crunchy core that opens up and draws you in. The palate is fresh and exciting, with juicy strawberries and summer fruits playing hero. Racy acidity ensures the wine stays crisp from the get go, with an appealing creamy note adding much approved texture and control.
Finishes a savoury dry, that enhances drinkability. Serve nice and cold, to experience the full gamut of possibilities this Rose has to offer.
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 – Pinot & Pilates is postponed for now, but what an idea!
