The 2020 Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 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. This vintage shows the hallmarks of a cool season: floral and pink grapefruit aromas, intensity and texture on the palate and bright, lifted acidity.
96 Point Rated - Tony Love James Halliday Wine Companion
"From estate vineyards at Balhannah and higher-altitude Lenswood, plus selected growers. Cool ferment, no oak, matured on lees, early bottling. A lightness of touch now marks this wine, less wild-tropical-fruit punch and more grapefruit/citrus, both aromatic partners creating a superbly balanced aromatic pattern that is enhanced by a short maturation on lees to develop the most delicious, powdery mouthfeel. Always a style leader, now offering next-level varietal sophistication."
95 Point Rated - Bob Campbell The Real Review
"Delicious sauvignon blanc with fragrant lemon, citrus, wild flowers, white peach and stone fruit flavours. It has a truly ethereal texture and gentle, fruity acidity. Power delivered with great subtlety. Wonderful purity."
95 Point Rated - Tyson Stelzer Wine Business Monthly
"Meticulously assembled. A coiled and focused Sauvignon of water white hue that intricately unites the full spectrum of varietal kaleidoscope in cut grass, stone fruits and tropicals. A lick of fruit sweetness is perfectly gauged to meet bright Adelaide Hills acidity. Impressive line and integrity, yet eminently smashable!"
