Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills 2008
The Adelaide Hills is widely acknowledged as the premium region for Sauvignon Blanc in Australia. Shaw + Smith has been made since 1990 and is a benchmark for the style. The grapes for this wine are sourced from selected sites throughout the Adelaide Hills with over 50% from their own vineyards at Woodside and Balhannah. A benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. Made from 100% Adelaide Hills grapes, the wine is unwooded to maximise varietal punch. The aroma has restrained sauvignon grassiness coupled with riper fruit characters. The palate is fresh and lively with pure fruit varietal flavours and crisp acidity.
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.
Great wine, one of my favorites
