Shaw & Smith Shiraz
Shaw & Smith
"The growing season in 2020 had two key features. Cool and windy weather at flowering gave us 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, we destemmed about 60%, and left 40% as whole bunches. Gentle, slow ferments gave us fine tannins, before the wines were tucked into a mix of small and larger barrels for 14 months."
"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." - Winemakers note
