...this is unadulterated winemaking at its best.
About the Wine
This is one effortlessly elegant and seriously delicious Shiraz from Keppell Smith.
Taking inspiration from the fine wines of Burgundy, Smith has a minimalistic approach to making wine. With only wild ferments and staying hands-off during the process, the Shiraz that emerges at the end is a pure, silky and balanced drop.
Full of spice, red and black berries with a silky, smooth texture, this wine is an excellent addition to the cellar.
Savaterre is a small Beechworth winery with a large reputation.
Founded in 1996, this premium producer boasts one of the most sought-after Chardonnays in the Beechworth region, regularly talked about in the same esteem as the likes of Giaconda and Sorrenberg.
Power is the theme here - in both the reds and whites made by Keppell Smith.
While he produces only a small amount of wine each year, Keppell's loyal following continues to grow, making his wines increasingly difficult to track down!
