Family and wine are amongst Geoff’s great loves, this wine is the perfect balance of these.

Saint Nic is a rich and spicy blend named after his bright and affable only son.

Vintage Information
The 2021 growing season was almost perfect with some describing it as a ‘once in a lifetime’ vintage. Producing favourable conditions with mild weather showing the potential for above average yields. A comparatively mild and dry Summer with minimal rain. This coupled with very few hot days leading to a very positive harvest. Cooler than usual conditions during vintage resulted in yields across the region as average to high, with some experiencing their best crop in many years. These conditions leading up to and through  vintage have resulted in excellent quality.

Winemakers Notes
The colour is a dark red with youthful purple hues. On the aroma, there's dark cherry, bright raspberry, violets, spice and some meaty, savoury notes. The palate is wonderfully flavoursome and balanced with fine subtle tannins, generous fruit and good length. Aeration, or time in the glass allows the fruit to further open up and reveal its full splendour.

Food Pairing
Drink with pork dumplings, lamb Koftas, Tacos, lamb Yiros and BBQ sausages.
