  • THE BRIEF

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • Established by winemaker Martin Shaw and Master of Wine Michael Hill Smith in 1989, 2019 is the 30th vintage that Shaw + Smith has made. The Sauvignon Blanc has always remained true to region and style, but is better now than at any time during the 30 years.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Hand picked. Cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    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.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Shaw + Smith own two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah and Lenswood, totalling 55 hectares. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Shaw + Smith was established in 1989 by cousins Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw. They make wines exclusively from the Adelaide Hills, from varieties that suit the cooler climate: Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Shaw + Smith own two vineyards, in Lenswood and Balhannah. Balhannah is also home to the winery where the Tasting Room is open daily. Shaw + Smith’s first vintage was in 1990, and the early vintages were made at Wirra Wirra and Petaluma. In 1999 they purchased a property at Balhannah, where they planted vines, and built the winery and tasting room in time for the 2000 vintage. In 2012 they purchased an established 20 hectare vineyard in Lenswood. As the business has grown Michael and Martin have built a formidable team to continue the evolution of Shaw + Smith, including Master of Wine David LeMire, Senior Winemaker Adam Wadewitz, Business Manager Grant Lovelock and Group Viticulturist Murray Leake.
