Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, the 2018 vintage is defined by balance and effortless flow.
Season: Outstanding quality from a growing season that threatened, at times, to be tricky. After some heat in January, the moderate, dry and sunny months of February and March delivered beautifully balanced fruit. Crop levels were slightly below
average, enhancing flavour and intensity.
Source: From low yielding vines predominantly at Balhannah in the central Adelaide Hills, and from Echunga and Macclesfield to the south.
Vinification: Hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole
berries and whole bunches in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and
minimal working. Aged in French oak for fourteen months, of which one
third was new.
Cellar potential: Has the concentration and structure to develop fine tertiary characters in bottle over the next 15 years
