Shaw and Smith Shiraz Adelaide Hills 2007
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. The 2007 growing season was warmer than usual. Spring frosts affected some parts of the Adelaide Hills, hence quantities were down slightly. Shiraz grapes ripened slowly and evenly resulting in intense colour, pepper-spice flavours and greatintensity.
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.
