Quick Overview

This has utterly convincing varietal character, spiced black cherries allied with touches of charcuterie, the texture/mouthfeel with enough complexity to take it into the top echelon.
Other than Ashton Hills, this is as good as it gets in this neck of the woods.” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday

Product Description

Retaining true Pinot Noir characteristics, maintaining full, rich fruit with deep berry notes and lunges of spice. Thick slices of dark cherry and blueberry parry with the floral notes on the palate leading to an opulent finish of soft velvety tannins. Delicious to drink young but five years in the cellar will reward your patience.


The grapes for The Sabre are from some of the oldest and best sited Pinot Noir vineyards in the high cool comate Lenswood and Piccadilly subregions of the Adelaide Hills. We work with our growers to produce moderate yields of fruit, well exposed to sunlight to maximise colour and ripe flavours.


2014 was a year of light crops, much like 2012 and again mainly due to poor set that produced light bunches, often with ‘hens and chickens’. This effect mixes full size berries on the bunch with miniature unseeded berries and although it reduces the crop size, it can have a positive effect on colour and concentration by increasing the ratio of skins to juice.

This has utterly convincing varietal character, spiced black cherries allied with touches of charcuterie, the texture/mouthfeel with enough complexity to take it into the top echelon.
