Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Adelaide Hills, South Australia   |    750ml   |    12.5%
Shaw and Smith has firmly established itself as one of Australia's leading Sauvignon Blanc makers. The 2018 Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc represents the 29th vintage of this wine, which is once again an exceptional Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. Offering lively and aromatic notes of passionfruit, nashi pear, and lime, the palate is typically intense with plenty of fresh limey fruit, restrained tropical fruit notes and mouthwatering acidity. The impressive purity and dry, balanced finish make this a standout example that is sure to be well-received by Shaw and Smith fans.

"95 Points. This is an outstanding Aussie sauvignon, perhaps the best that Shaw + Smith have made. It is superbly fragrant and fresh, scented with lemon, lime, grapefruit and floral touches. Passionfruit is there but not too overt. It's intense, delicate and light on its feet, begging another sip". A$28" - Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Magazine, Oct/ Nov 2018.

"Typically it shows a pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness. 2018 was a standout year. The growing season weather behaved well overall, giving us well-balanced acidity and good flavour development in the pink grapefruit, lavender spectrum." - Shaw & Smith Wines.

2018 is the 29th vintage that Shaw + Smith has made. It has become known as a benchmark for Adelaide Hills, and Australian, Sauvignon Blanc.

From our estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers. Hand picked. Cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness. Outstanding quality from a growing season that threatened, at times, to be tricky. After some heat in January, the moderate, dry and sunny months of February and March delivered beautifully balanced fruit. Crop levels were slightly below average, enhancing flavour and intensity.
