The consistent bench mark of Australian Sauv Blanc. Sourced from estate vineyards in Balhannah, Piccadilly and Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills.
Shaw + Smith, Sauvignon Blanc, Adelaide Hills, 2022
Punchy and bright. Pink grapefruit signature with lifted nettle leaf, lemon citrus, passion fruit seed, rock salt, pickled jalapeño, just shelled peas and a sense of calm. The palate provides the best of both worlds: generous texture and creaminess emboldened and stitched tight with impressive, high frequency acidity. Rightfully keeps its place in the upper echelons of the variety.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
