Shaw and Smith has established itself as one of Australia's finest wineries, specialising in the varieties that thrive in the cool-climate of South Australia's Adelaide Hills. Another exceptional example of Adelaide Hills Shiraz, the 2019 Shaw and Smith Shiraz lives up to the lofty standards set by recent previous vintages of this wine.
"94 Points. Sourced from 3 sites, a mix of whole berries and bunches, matured for 14 months in a third new oak. There's an alluring mix of fruit and flint in the aromatics, offering an early hint of the balanced earthiness and plum fruit flavours sitting very comfortably together across the whole length of the palate. Fine, white peppery notes from the tannins add a savoury element on the finish. 13.5% alc. Drink by: 2030. Screwcap"- Tony Love, winecompanion.com.au.
"Fans of Shaw + Smith Shiraz will no doubt be very happy with the 2019 vintage. It’s beautifully pitched and manages to seamlessly combine quite ripe and fleshy fruits with subtlety and a silky texture – this is a wine where it is a challenge to stop at just one glass. Deeply coloured, it is immediately open for business with bright, savoury and engaging fruits. There is blackberry, black pepper and high quality oak with a nice touch of stalky complexity adding some detail. This is followed by a ripe core of dark fruits on the palate with some liquorice and earthy flavours plus ripe tannins that provide a good backbone which drives a powerful and long finish. What I like most though is its deliciously silky texture that makes this wine extraordinarily drinkable at a young age."- Angus Hughson, winepilot.com
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.
