New label launch tasting @saintandscholar Gris - lots of yellow apple and a lot of fruit structure. Pinot / Shiraz - pleasant ellegant fruit on that front pallete and not over complicated. Dewy tried Business School once, but he realised making wine was better. He also realised all the ways he could make it even better. And so he does; passionately pursuing viticulture and making great, delicious wine. When he’s not busy making God’s nectar and running cellars in the Adelaide Hills, he’s developing it around the world. Most years he completes his Vintages at Domaine Prieure Roch in Burgundy to further his Natural winemaking understanding and skills, happily taste-testing too. Practices he then translates to Saint & Scholar. Dewy smiles at everyone he meets and every grape he tastes. Because he loves what he does. He’s very good at it, too. That’s why he’s the Saint. Reid Bosward - A career spanning over 25 years, 30 harvests, and several cork pops, Reid has worked across multiple vintages around the world, including the Lurton family in Bordeaux, as well as Miervois, Moldova, South Africa, and Spain. To be honest, labelling Reid as only a scholar would undersell his wine portfolio; his technical capability and knowledge is of enormous envy in the industry. So is his refusal to buy into the esoteric ramblings that typically come with it. Because whilst he prefers making, finding, and tasting brilliant wine, he likes it served with honesty and simplicity, not bullshit. He also likes it served with good conversation. So, whilst he’s a man of few words when it comes to wine, he’s a man of many when it comes to life’s philosophies. Pull up a chair and see why they call him the Scholar. #somm#winelife#winewriter#shiraz#pinotnoir#wine#australianwine#adelaidehills

ATTENTION keen knitters with sore fingers: this knitting cord- helps reduce weight of the knitting on each arm (knitted garment sits in the lap instead of being held by each hand) and therefore decreases load on the small joints of the hand. AND the needles are smooth and don’t get cold! Thanks to my delightful client for sharing her wisdom with me & giving me permission to share this with you!
