Description

Nestled in the mountains of northeastern Victoria, just outside the picturesque town of Beechworth, lays the Savaterre vineyard. The site was "discovered" in 1996 by Keppell Smith, owner and winemaker, after an expansive search through Australia's quality wine regions. The mild summer days, cool climate elevation combined with the rolling foothills of the Victorian Alps was the magic "terroir" combination sought by Keppell.

Intensely focused on the creation of outstanding, individualistic wines far removed from the mainstream, Keppell looks more to the wines, winemaking and viticulture of the Old World as his inspiration. Ranging from vineyard aspect through to the use of natural yeasts and French barriques, he combines the art and the science of winemaking in his drive to produce the finest of wines.

The 2019 Beechworth vintage has been described as 'classic' – not too hot or cold, dry or wet. Savaterre continues its top pinot run with another stunner, featuring fine aromatics drenched in Australian bush scents, pepper, tomato leaf, cherry and undergrowth. Offers a compelling wine with a vein of bitter herbs running long and an Italian amaro bite that brings an engaging savouriness. Clean, brisk, youthful and not even close to its prime.

Beautiful pinot, seamless, lithe, fresh feeling, interesting. Sour cherry, game meat, truffle is the deal. It sits frisky and taut in the palate but there’s a decent chew of fruit, spice and gentle wood seasoning with a good deal of the crackle of autumn leaf savouriness in the mix. Feels very elegant, complex, compelling and just straight up great. Excellent in any sense.
