Shaw + Smith - Shiraz

Tasting notes
  • 92 Points - The Wine Advocate

    "I've been tasting Shaw + Smith's Adelaide Hills Shiraz for over a decade, and I recently enjoyed a 2005 that was still drinking well at age 12. The 2015 Shiraz offers a welcome combination of smoky, spicy, savory and fruity elements, hinting at hickory, pepper, meat and mulberries. It's medium to full-bodied but never seems heavy or overdone, retaining a sense of liveliness and vitality on the mouthwatering finish." - Joe Czerwinski

      About the Producer

      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.
