Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Pale and bright, with great clarity. Aromas of pink grapefruit, with a hint of basil, underline the freshness that this wine has in abundance. On the palate the hallmarks of 2012 come the fore: intensity of fruit, length of flavour, and purity of varietal character. As always the style is a ripe expression of Sauvignon Blanc, reflected in the juicy midpalate texture. Bone dry and unoaked to maximize freshness.
Shaw + Smith began over a long lunch in 1989 when cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith decided to realize a long held dream to make wine together. They specialise in Sauvignon Blanc, a single vineyard Chardonnay, cool climate Shiraz and more recently small batches of Riesling and Pinot Noir.
