Vintage 14 continues
VINTAGE UPDATE 2014
Next on Shaw + Smith’s picking list is Shiraz, and we’re excited about the slow, cool end to the season which has given rise to amazing flavour and balance at relatively low baumé levels (a measure of the amount of sugar that is concentrated in the wine). Spice and floral aromas are wafting out from our favourite S+S blocks.
The Chardonnay ferment is now ticking along nicely and we are happy to see what we thought were great flavours in the vineyard showing up in the fermented batches. Savvy is also fermenting away, working its magic, and the filing the cellar with its wonderful aromas.
Watch this space.
