Shaw and Smith Shiraz Adelaide Hills 2008

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. This is a vibrant, modern interpretation of Australian Shiraz. It has an intense colour, pepper-spice flavours and great intensity.
