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.
While the 2020 vintage was a challenging vintage in the Adelaide Hills, with yields significantly down, the 2020 Shaw and Smith Shiraz is another impressive release. Always a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, the focus here is on balance, vibrant fruit and spice, rather than sheer power.
"94 Points. It feels neat and composed though it also boasts excellent concentration of fruit flavour. This puts the runs on the board and lets them speak for themselves. Kirsch, boysenberry, smoked bacon and cedarwood flavours, though the driver here is fruit and lots of it. Tannin, integrated, keeps things taut-enough, while twiggy spice notes add breadth. The aromatics of this wine are quite wonderful, all sweet berried and exuberant, and the palate too is in fine form Tasted: Apr22 14% alc. $55. Screwcap Drink: 2024 - 2030+"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
