The best of each vintage is labeled the Reserve for Shaw and this year the Semillon gets the nod. The wine was fermented and matured with partial solids contact.
Shaw Wines, Reserve, Semillon, Canberra, 2019
Colour of bright lemon/gold with green highlights. Potent and lifted nose, the solids work providing depth and richness not only for the palate. Lemon/lime citrus, verbena and blossom. Even a hint of dusty musk. A well layered palate offering initial rich attack before drawing fine and tight. Minerally, chalky mouthfeel to finish counterbalancing the juicy acidity.
