What To Expect

Tasting Notes
Typically it shows a pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness. The 2017 vintage is true to style with accentuated florals and very bright natural acidity, reminiscent of the 2015 vintage.

Growing and Making

Production Notes
Sourced from cool, high elevation vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. Meticulous viticulture, with cane pruning, vertical shoot positioning, and yields limited through shoot and bunch thinning to increase fruit intensity. 100% hand picked. Fermented cool (10-12°C) in stainless steel followed by a short maturation on lees. Prompt bottling to retain freshness. There was record rainfall throughout the growing season but importantly it reduced to average in November during flowering and was dry during March, the later part of ripening. Record low temperatures were also recorded resulting in a late, very cool vintage. Flavours are intense and the natural acidity is striking.

Story

Winemaker Notes
2017 is Shaw + Smith’s 28th vintage. It has become known as a benchmark for Adelaide Hills, and Australian, Sauvignon Blanc. The style has remained fresh, aromatic, and pure over the journey. Recent evolution has been to source from higher and cooler sites, allowing us to retain lively acidity if conditions are warmer.
