Saint-go Saint sounds more like an AFL cheer than a wine, but perhaps a cheeky glass of this would go down well with a burger post-match. Made mostly from tannat, it's a robust wine showing aromas of dense blue and black berries amongst the earthy spices and toasted oak. The palate is quite full and juicy, with a plummy middle, fine and slightly grippy tannins, and a surprisingly fruity and savoury finish.
The complex and intense flavours of the Château St Go reflect its ageing in 225 litre oak barrels for 12 months in a dark cellar. The wine is a dark purple/red almost black colour with an aroma of blackberry and roasted notes. These flavours continue on the palate with a full and rich structure. The ripe tannins reveal the ageing potential of the wine.
Reviews and Accolades
"Aromatically, the Chateau Saint-Go 2007 has pronounced notes of blackberries, supplemented by the scent of sweet cloves, dark plum skins and dark cherries, and is generally rather opulent in expression. On the palate, the wine is dry, with medium acid, fine grained tannins and medium to long length. Blackberries abound, and the finish is balanced. I found myself drinking this wine rather effortlessly, enjoying its nuances of length, grip and blackberry flavours. I would suggest that it is fully developed and provides excellent drinking right now. Good" ebruary 2013 Sean Mitchell from The Grape Observer
