95 Points - Campbell Mattinson
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 2018 Shaw and Smith Shiraz lives up to the lofty standards set by recent previous vintages of this wine.
"95 Points. It’s become an anticipated wine. Fantastic release. Stunning length, a wide array of flavours, top tier tannin and the (velvety) texture to match. Cloves, nuts, cherry-plum. graphite, woodsmoke. Cool climate profile with a warmth in its heart. I drank a couple of glasses but I was convinced from the first sip. My only real question was whether it was 95 or 96. Tasted: Aug20 14% alc. $49 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2032+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
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.
