Shaw and Smith Shiraz Adelaide Hills 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Adelaide Hills has now proven it can make truly exciting spicy Shiraz. The key is careful site selection, low yields and restrained use of oak. The blend component from the warmer sub-area of Macclesfield gives structure and richness, whilst Balhannah contributes spiciness and perfume. A vibrant, modern interpretation of Australian Shiraz. Vintage 2006 was very cool and dry. Shiraz ripened slowly and evenly and was harvested later than usual. Intense colour, pepper-spice flavours and well balanced sugar and acid levels resulted.

A really outstanding wine: balanced, elegant, autumnal.

This is one of the best! Not quite as good as the 2004 (for my taste) but for anyone that enjoys a big, bold, dark, smooth and smokey Shiraz then this is one of the best you can get. A classic Aussie drop, and still has years to go before it hits its peak! Lovely stuff!

Ausgeprägte Pfefferaromen und Gewürznoten, gute Fülle und Länge im Gaumen. Ein Shiraz im modernen Stil vinifiziert und trotzdem mit den sortentypischen Aromen geprägt.
