Growing and Making

Production Notes
Sourced from high and cool sites in Lenswood and Mt Torrens. The grapes were all hand picked. Half were whole bunch pressed and half were crushed and pressed, each fermented separately. The wine was blended and then spent four months on lees prior to bottling.

Story

Winemaker Notes
Shaw + Smith have a long standing love of Riesling and believe the Adelaide Hills can produce fine examples with ageing potential. Site is most important, so much so that Shaw + Smith took a Riesling hiatus from 2010 - 2013, until preferred sites were found in Lenswood was selected in 2014.

Reviews

James Halliday - Wine Companion - December 2021

This is one of those sneaky wines that manage to hide their qualities until the finish and aftertaste, when all heaven breaks free. Its mix of lime, lemon, Granny Smith apple and white peach all demand a place. 96 points

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front - November 2021

This is about as delicious as a young riesling gets. The fruit is forward, generous and just plain lovely. Lime and chalk, green apple and passionfruit, star anise and a seltzer/mineral character. It has length too; it’s not all up-front. Delightful is the word. 93 points

JamesSuckling.com - October 2021

This is bright and vibrant with aromas of lime, white peach and a flinty, sulphide edge. The palate has such juicy peach and nectarine flavors. Mouthwateringly fresh acidity. One of their best. Drink now. Screw cap. 93 points
