A vibrant, pale ruby colour, the 2014 Pinot Noir has a lovely nose displaying cranberry, red currant and violet aromas with hints of underbrush and clove. Light to medium-bodied, it is elegant, soft and fresh in the mouth and finishes silky and long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Shaw + Smith own two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah and Lenswood, totalling 55 hectares. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
Site selection is particularly important in the Adelaide Hills, with its diversity of altitude, aspect, microclimate, and soil. We also use a number of different cultivars or ‘clones’ of each grape variety, which contribute different qualities to the final product.
