Story

Reviews

David Sly - Decanter - August 2020 

The familiar Shaw + Smith take on clean, lean Sauvignon Blanc continues to confidently champion a distinctive Adelaide Hills style rather than chase other more overt and pungent examples. The nose is full and ripe, more zesty grapefruit than gooseberry, with the slightest hint of cut lawn. The body is too slim to slide into tropical fruit territory, with its firm acidic spine keeping the citrus accent sharp and crisp. Friendly and self-assured, it’s a worthy dinner table companion. 93 points. 

The Real Review - Bob Campbell - August 2020 

Delicious sauvignon blanc with fragrant lemon, citrus, wild flowers, white peach and stone fruit flavours. It has a truly ethereal texture and gentle, fruity acidity. Power delivered with great subtlety. Wonderful purity. 95 points.  

Jamessuckling.com - July 2020 

A very fresh, ripe and mouthwatering edition of this staple Adelaide Hills sauvignon that has such intense perfume, ranging from jasmine to nectarines, limes, peaches, passion fruit, melon and more. The palate is a riot of fresh, fleshy passion-fruit, nectarine and lime flavor. Very supple, fleshy and complete. Drink now. 93 points.
