Tasting Notes

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 2019 has intensity of flavour and is particularly bright, fresh, and balanced.

Story

Reviews

Nick Bulleid - Gourmet Traveller Wine Online - January 2020

2019 Shaw + Smith, Adelaide Hills has a fine, perfumed nose with wild flowers and slight grassiness. There’s a touch of sweetness on entry, although the wine is effectively dry. The palate is soft and round, with beautiful freshness. “Well balanced, with floral, pyrazine (grassy) characters, citrus and a little rose,” noted Curkovic. “Elevated acidity, with flesh, balance and harmony.” This is so easy to drink.

Top New Release Australian Whites - Gourmet Traveller WINE - December/January issue

From a difficult year, Shaw + Smith has managed to produce a very creditable sauvignon, which may not be a cracker like the ’18, but isn’t far behind. Pale hued, with a lifted tropical fruit aroma leading into an intense palate of lemon and lime over tropical notes. 93 Points.

Angus Hughson - WISH Magazine - November 2019

A classic Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc although a little bit more restrained in 2019, with bright guava and citrus fruits driving a zesty, lightweight palate making for an enjoyable and early drinking style.

James Halliday - Wine Companion - October 2019

Light straw-quartz hue. Not the easiest of vintages, but you'd never know it given the intensity, the resonance and length of this vibrant, juicy wine. The 30th vintage, and I buy the back label comment 'the wine is better now than at any time in our 30 years'. 95 Points
