Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2016

I’m not going to mince words here. The Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc is arguably Australia’s finest straight SB. I’m not talking in the realms of a barrel aged beauty, like Domaine A’s “Lady A Fumé,” I’m talking about stainless steel tanks, super vibrant fruit and nothing else.

The most delicate nose of melon rind, grapefruit citrus, even a touch of shiny green apple skin. Effortless flavour as it rolls from freshly mown clover to zesty pineapple rind to crunchy passion fruit seeds. The finish is all class: acidity is in perfect saliva inducing balance with lingering quality fruit tones.  Bravo Adam Wadewitz and the S+S team.
