SHAW + SMITH SHIRAZ 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
An icon of elegant Shiraz from a cooler climate in the Adelaide Hills. Sitting high on the hills between the McLaren Vale, Barossa and Eden Valleys, the cooler Adelaide Hills allow Shaw and Smith to craft a Shiraz that is deep and fine but lighter and more focused - with aromatic red fruits and spicy minerals suggesting a comparison with some French, Northern Rhone styles. Giving the best Kiwi wines a run for their money, this is a unique and classy offering from the neighbours.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power. The 2015 vintage is true to style with particular opulence and generosity: a reflection of an excellent warm yet even season."
97/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2014 Vintage)
"From central and southern (the latter warmer) parts of the Adelaide Hills, hand-picked, part destemmed, part whole bunch, open-fermented with gentle plunging. The colour is bright, the bouquet full of red fruits, darker fruit notes and delicious pepper and spice nuances. These characters flow through to the medium-bodied palate of Shaw + Smith's most consistently outstanding wine, the '15 vintage making it seem so easy."

95/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review (2015 Vintage)
"The best shiraz yet under this label: deliciously intense with blood plum, raspberry, black cherry aromas laced with subtle pepper and spice nuances. Marvellous richness and a seamless, soft-textured palate which is fruit-driven, with barely perceptible oak. Drink now or cellar"
