2009 Shaw + Smith Aged Release Shiraz
Deep colour, vibrant hue; deep and compelling levels of ripe black fruits, savoury spices and well handled toasty oak; the palate is unctuous and silky, with black and red fruits combining with silky fine-grained tannins expanding across the palate with true grace and harmony; long and luscious.
Lester Jesberg - Winewise Volume 26 Number 6 February 2011
This is a beautifully made spicy dark cherry style which is perfectly poised and utterly delicious. One of Australia’s finest reds. (not yet released.) Excellent value.

Shaw & Smith regularly makes some of the smartest shiraz in the land. Very deep red-purple colour; the bouquet is spicy and ripe with ironstone and dark-fruit aromas. In the mouth it’s rich and concentrated, powerful and commanding, with brilliant ripeness and impressive length. Now to 2034.
