2005 Shaw + Smith Shiraz Reviews

 

JAMES HALLIDAY

“An unusually powerful wine for the region, brightly focused and intense blackberry, licorice and spice flavours, yet no heat, over-extraction or dead fruit.”

AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2008


RALPH KYTE-POWELL

“It combines concentration and elegance in superb style, with tangy 
flavours, silky texture, great depth and length, and fine, dry tannins align perfect equilibrium. A class act.”

Epicure Uncorked, The Age, May 2007 THE BEST ***** .


HARVEY STEIMAN

“Bright, lively and distinctive for its peppery, spicy plum flavours, which remain zesty and finish with refinement and class…..harmonious and age worthy.”

Wine Spectator 92 points


MAX ALLEN

“This wonderful red from the Adelaide Hills is an excellent example of the new-wave shiraz style that is becoming increasingly fashionable in Australia”

Australian Gourmet Traveller, June 2007


AUSTRALIAN GOURMET TRAVELLER TASTING PANEL

95 points *****
“Another stunning shiraz from the cousins; very spicy with a faintly floral lift. It's deep and fleshy in the mouth with soft tannins and loads of fruit sweetness. Ripe, glossy and lingering.”


KEN GARGETT

“Don't Buy Wine Without Me, 2008” 94 points


CAMPBELL MATTISON

“In 12 months' time it will be a dinner party slayer. I'm very impressed.”

Winefront Monthly, May 2007 95 points


PETER FORRESTAL

“.. its finest expression yet in the 2005 Shaw and Smith Shiraz. This is immediately satisfying and age-worthy.”

The Sunday Times, March 2007


JANE MACQUITTY

“A world-class shiraz for Shaw and Smith, as this bright, ripe seductively spiced yet understated red demonstrates.”

The Times (UK) 21 April 2007


TONY LOVE

“Fabulous, lifted purple fruit fragrances lift this wine into your senses; it's alive with deep-centred fruit and wonderfully spicy with white pepper, as dusty tannins drive it onwards. It's a fairly big fellow - all you desire in a long and luxurious shiraz.”

The Adelaide Advertiser, April 2007


BEN CANAIDER

“Perfumed and polite shiraz. Its velvety and full with good acid and keen tannins keeping everything structurally sound....”

Delicious Magazine, July 2007


NICK STOCK

“This ripe, brooding cool-climate shiraz is one of the Adelaide Hills' flagship reds. Dark fruits are seasoned with pepper and spice….savoury edges are folded neatly below sweet fruit, tannins and oak are substantial yet balanced. This has swagger and style.”

Qantas Magazine, July 2007


JOSH RAYNOLDS

“Bright purple. Intensely perfumed nose offers vivid, violet-accented blackberry and cherry sharpened by piquant minerality. Medium-bodied and fresh, with vibrant red and dark berry flavors, fine tannins and a crisp minerality on the finish. I love the combination of concentration and finesse here.”

2008 JAPAN INTERNATIONAL WINE CHALLENGE, Gold Medal 
International Wine Cellar (IWC) (USA) 91 points


WINE WISE

“This is a magnificent young cool area shiraz. The nose is all red fruits and spice and the palate is extremely fine, with intense varietal fruit and seamlessly intergrated oak. A gem that will continue to improve in bottle.”

April 2007


JANE MACQUITTY

“Low yields and a cool, dry season add up to a world-class shiraz for Shaw and Smith, as this bright, ripe seductively spiced yet understated red demonstrates.”

The Times (UK), 21 April 2007
