Saint & Scholar Sauvignon Blanc 2021


Bright fresh aromas of mango, pineapples and passionfruit, combined with a citrus burst ensure the wine stays varietal, yet restrained. A delicate floral note, with a nutty creamy edge offers a final unexpected touch of complexity, on this tight yet balanced nose.

Not an overstated nose, but more balanced and controlled. The palate screams warm weather, with bright zippy acidity rolling across the tongue leading into flavours of citrus and fresh tropical fruit that encapsulate ocean views.

Focused phenolics and a touch of creaminess balance attractively with the acid drive, and impact their little piece of texture.

Winery Profile:
The Saint & Scholar vineyard makes for a beautiful, spectacular backdrop for their winemakers. North facing and particularly hilly, with hilly terrain means in an area of high rainfall, like the Adelaide Hills, water drains rather well. Together with the beautiful sunlight and naturally cool climate, this makes for a perfect, harmonious environment to ripen quality, consistent vines; soon to be quality, consistent wines.

This is a partnership of skill and hands-on winemaking experience between Stephen Dew (a.k.a The Saint) and Reid Bosward (a.k.a The Scholar). Stephen Dew is involved in prestigious wineries such as Prieure Roch in Burgundy where winemaking is akin to religion, while Reid Bosward who owns Kaesler, has the great technical knowledge and the expertise of being involved in top wineries. Therefore, the result is terroir-driven winemaking with sustainable viticulture, natural winemaking elements, and sophisticated complexity.
