Critic reviews

The Wine Front – "To my personal tastes – as opposed to straight scoring – this is the best Savaterre Pinot Noir yet released. It has power and length but more delicacy – let’s call it prettiness – than previous releases. It’s made with 85 percent whole bunches. This will be released in February 2014. Put this wine in your mouth and watch the tail unfurl. The vintage, a change of oak cooper, the age of the vineyard, earlier picking, adjustment to the viticulture – not sure exactly how this has stepped into the next echelon but it has. Its maker and grower, Keppell Smith, says “it’s just Keppell getting a bit smarter”. Line of acid and tannin is superb. It’s an exceptional wine. Dark, meaty, ashen, smoky, has some fruit grunt but it’s fresh and tangy and lively. If you have any doubts over Beechworth’s ability to make outstanding pinot noir on occasion, then try this, and watch the vapour of doubt float out the window. Rated: 95 Points. Drink 2015 -2022+"

James Halliday – ‘Beechworth isn’t the easiest place to grow pinot noir but the gods were especially kind this season. This is a beautiful wine. It unfurls in your mouth as you drink it. Keen, smoky oak. Dark, meaty, (black)-cherried fruit. And stalky notes of dried herbs and ash. It’s a tangy, lively, lengthy wine with its array of flavours fluttering out through the finish.’ 96 Points – James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion

Description

“Magnificent Smith!" exclaimed the Pope of Pinot at the Langton’s Classification IV Sydney event upon tasting our 2012 Pinot. The highest honour, in my opinion, I can receive in Australia. I will let you all guess who you think is the person whom I consider the Pope of Pinot.

"I’m very humbled that so many people are enjoying this vintage. Seeing something evolve over time is a great joy to me and it’s a pleasure to share that.

2012 was a special vintage coming off the back of the 2011 disaster where no crop was picked at all.

Cool nights warm days and fabulous rainfall - not too much!

I’ve made a few changes to the winemaking as well this vintage. Taking more risks. Walking on the wild side…even more than usual!

Most importantly I’ve started importing my own French oak. I can now be guaranteed of getting the very best due to my relationship with the family and their superior oak sourced from a family member who is one of France's largest oak buyers." Keppell Smith.
