Shaw and Smith is an alliance between cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill-Smith. Their aim is to make contemporary, high quality wines that are outstanding examples of their type made from grapes grown in the Adelaide Hills.
Shaw and Smith specialise in grape varieties suited to the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills; Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, PInot Noir and Shiraz.
The vineyard is located on a 28 ha property planted at Woodside Vineyard with new plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir at Balhannah.
Delicate, fragrant, light to medium bodied but with deceptive power, firm tannins and medium term ageing potential. Light red. Bright nose, really fragrant – juicy cranberries, cinnamon and bergamot. On the palate there is lots of rhubarb and earl grey tea on top of a savoury core – cured meats, stem, sap, and spice. Nice acid cut and grippy tannins.
