92 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Shiraz has pronounced notes of red and black cherries, red plums, dried Provence herbs and lavender with a waft of anise. Medium-bodied with a soft, velvety texture and plenty of red and black fruit in the mouth, it offers layers of pepper, herbs and spices in the finish. Very pretty Shiraz." - 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.
