2014 Shaw + Smith Lenswood Vineyard Chardonnay
Huon Hooke - The Age, Epicure - August 2016
Indulge yourself. This new wine, from Shaw + Smith’s coolest vineyard (at 500 metres), is a screamer. A delicate yet powerful wine with tremendous precision and intensely focused flavours, citrus, malt, vanilla and mineral notes dominating. Creamy lees touches. Superb harmony; great wine.
Huon Hooke - The Real Review - July 2016
Bright mid to light yellow hue and a very complex, nougat-like bouquet with creamy lees touches, great intensity of flavour and focus. There are various citrus fruit aromas, a trace of malt and vanilla, the whole range of flavours and aromas beautifully balanced and no one thing dominating. The acidity is lively and refreshing, and all the wine's components are superbly harmonised. An exciting new addition to the S+S portfolio. (Altitude: 500 metres). Drink 2016 to 2026.
Mike Bennie - Delicious - September 2016
An immediate sense of high quality. Jeez, this smells decadent in stone fruit and citrus, rich with spicy wood, lively with flinty mineral character. For your best roast chicken ever.
