  • THE BRIEF
  • Nestled in the mountains of northeastern Victoria, just outside the picturesque town of Beechworth, lies 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.

  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Lifted aroma of dewy rose petal, sour cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and ripe red berry fruits. Exotic spices with a subtle gamey truffle finish. Pure, focused and precise with great length, texture and persistence. An elegant wine of depth, complexity and finesse.

The region itself is blessed with beautiful views, fantastic local produce, outstanding dining and of course the historic town of Beechworth. It has a growing wine presence and has recently been recognised as an independent wine region.

    MIKE BENNIE - THE WINE FRONT


    It’s a fragrant, lighter, fresher rendition than we’ve seen. Plummy fruit with rose hip tea, sniffs of cranberry and a touch of smoky bergamot-like character in the bouquet. The palate has a juiciness but there’s a tightness too, tannins weave through the sluice of cherry-pomegranate flavours, there’s a light earthy savouriness and the fine finishes fresh and cool. It’s lovely drinking, all up. Such easy, satiny pleasure.
