Savaterre 2022 Pinot Noir
"From a long cool vintage, and Keppell Smith says 'There's bugger all of it'. The wine will be labelled 'Reserve' only when the year is good enought...
Aromatic, spicy, lots of savoury complexity here and autumnal character aplenty, pencil/cedar oak, flickers of liquorice root emerge with air. Mix of red cherry and red fruits, an earthy leaf litter character, light, fresh, gently sappy, tannins are subtle and buried in the wine, some blood orange in the mix. Excellent length. Such character. I'd say it's the best Pinot Noir they've released to date. Rated : 96 Points"
Gary Walsh - The Winefront
This is a delicious, juicy, fragrant wine.
Lifted aroma of dewy rose petal, sour cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and ripe red berry fruits, exotic spices with a subtle gamey truffle finish. Pure, focused and precise with great length, texture and persistence.
An elegant wine of depth, complexity and finesse.
