Trophy – Best Shiraz - 5 Stars & Outstanding - Winewise Championship 2023
95 Points & Gold National Wine Show of Australia 2023
The 2021 vintage was almost perfect, with a long, cool growing season, plenty of rain falling at the right time and slow ripening conditions resulting in flavoursome berry development.
“We give the honour of leading the parade of Championship winners to the 2021 Saint & Scholar Graduates Collection Adelaide Hills Shiraz. Not only is the shiraz class the most hotly contested, the 2021 category was the best line-up of young reds we’ve ever tasted in the Championship. The floral, red fruits, spice nose is utterly captivating, and the delivery of sensory pleasure continues on the long, silky palate. Some sites in the Adelaide Hills are definitely sweet spots for shiraz, and this wine exemplifies all that’s great for region and variety. Is there a better shiraz bargain at the moment? We don’t think so.” – 5 Stars & Outstanding Winewise Championship 2023
We tasted this wine with winemaker Stephen Dew and instantly knew we were onto something special. It's textbook cool climate shiraz, floral and spicy, packed full of bright red fruits and supported by silky smooth tannins. 2021 was clearly a fantastic vintage for Shiraz (Syrah) in the Adelaide Hills.

The Saint & Scholar vineyard makes for a beautiful, spectacular backdrop for our makers. North facing and particularly hilly, you’ll see the fluffiest of fluffy clouds float above as the sun sinks across the valley, making you want to stay long after the day is done.
The hilly terrain means in an area of high rainfall, like the Adelaide Hills, water drains rather well. Together with the beautiful sunlight and naturally cool climate, this makes for a perfect, harmonious environment to ripen quality, consistent vines; soon to be quality, consistent wines.
So even if you can’t stand in the Adelaide Hills and see the beautiful harmony, thanks to the Saint & Scholar and their work together, you can pour a glass and taste it.
