95 Points - Bob Campbell
Shaw and Smith has firmly established itself as one of Australia's leading Sauvignon Blanc makers. The 2020 Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc represents the 31st vintage of this wine, which is once again an exceptional Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc.
Offering lively and aromatic notes of passionfruit, nashi pear, and lime, the palate is typically intense with plenty of fresh limey fruit, restrained tropical fruit notes and mouth watering acidity. The impressive purity and dry, balanced finish make this a standout example that is sure to be well-received by Shaw and Smith fans.
"95 Points. Delicious sauvignon blanc with fragrant lemon, citrus, wild flowers, white peach and stone fruit flavours. It has a truly ethereal texture and gentle, fruity acidity. Power delivered with great subtlety. Wonderful purity."- Bob Campbell, The Real Review.
"The familiar Shaw + Smith take on clean, lean Sauvignon Blanc continues to confidently champion a distinctive Adelaide Hills style rather than chase other more overt and pungent examples. The nose is full and ripe, more zesty grapefruit than gooseberry, with the slightest hint of cut lawn. The body is too slim to slide into tropical fruit territory, with its firm acidic spine keeping the citrus accent sharp and crisp. Friendly and self-assured, it’s a worthy dinner table companion. 93 points."- David Sly, Decanter, August 2020.
Shaw and Smith Wines began over a long lunch in 1989 when cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith decided to realise a long held dream to make wine together. Shaw and Smith had the clear vision to make exciting, refined wines exclusively from the Adelaide Hills.
Today the team at Shaw and Smith specialise in making Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Noir, all that rank amongst Australia's leading examples of their respective varieties.
Shaw and Smith's winery was built in time for the 2000 vintage. It houses a tasting room, offices and all winemaking facilities from fermentation to bottling. Shaw and Smith's environmentally sensitive winery is regarded as the benchmark for winery developments in the Adelaide Hills.
