The 30th vintage of this benchmark wine. The vines planted before the world was turned on its head. Smart thinking from Messrs Shaw and Hill Smith. Sourced from estate vineyards in Balhannah and Lenswood and from a handful of ‘highly valued growers.’
Shaw + Smith, Sauvignon Blanc, Adelaide Hills, 2019
That trademark pink grapefruit character underwritten by bright florals. Passionfruit and lime citrus with hints of blackcurrant leaf and even some musky chalk. Body and life, intensity and focus…no pungency here, simply a beautifully balanced, exquisite white wine. Pink grapefruit and perfectly ripe light tropical fruit. The acidity bracing without being shrill nor denying the fruit. Bravo Adam Wadewitz and team.
