95 Points - Tyson Stelzer
Shaw and Smith has firmly established itself as one of Australia's leading Sauvignon Blanc makers, with the 2023 vintage representing the 34th vintage of this much-loved wine.
The 2023 Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc is another top-line example of Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, opening with passionfruit, nashi pear and lime notes on the nose. The palate is again bursting with loads 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. The purity and precision on display is textbook Adelaide Hills Sauvignon of wonderful harmony and deliciously fragrant allure. Wonderful lemon and lime with lily blossom lift, green apple crunch and electric acid purity. It holds outstanding line and length, crystalline-pure and delightful."- Tyson Stelzer, Australian Wine Business Monthly, September 2023.
"94 Points. Pale, water-white colour; pungent intensity of aromas, peppermint lollies, background lemon juice and herbs both fresh and dried. Lively, delicate yet intense palate flavour, great varietal character and finishes clean and dry and long, with balanced but refreshing acidity and an emphatic farewell. Very smart Aussie sauvignon blanc."- Huon Hooke, The Real Review, July 2023.
"97 Points. This has gone up a dollar since last vintage, that’s 3.3 percent, which is exactly what Philip Lowe has been asking for. Now if only everyone could do that. Every year I taste this it’s worth another dollar and will undoubtedly be excellent value at $62 in 2053. Benchmark stuff"- Max Crus, Grape Expectations, July 2023.
