Shaw + Smith Shiraz 2020


$ $54.00
✓ In stock

Unapologetically cool climate Shiraz! A succulent wine with beautiful perfume, bright raspberry and boysenberry notes, and elegant tannins. Where 2019 was more opulent, this 2020 is sleek and tailored. 

The growing season in 2020 had two key features. Cool and windy weather at flowering gave Shaw + Smith super-low yields, and a lovely and cool February meant great flavour and acidity.

It was a game won or lost at the selection table. After hand sorting, the grapes were destemmed about 60%, and left 40% as whole bunches. Gentle, slow ferments gave rise to fine tannins, before the wines were tucked into a mix of small and larger barrels for 14 months.

Founded in 1989 by cousins, winemaker Martin Shaw and Master of Wine Michael Hill Smith, Shaw + Smith make wines exclusively from the Adelaide Hills.

Alc/Vol: 14.0%
