SHAW & SMITH ADELAIDE HILLS SHIRAZ
The Shaw and Smith wineries have been producing top quality wines in the cool climate of Adelaide Hills since 1989. We have always been massive fans of their Chardonnay but had fallen out of love a bit with the Shiraz. This, however, is a return to their inspired best.
92/100 Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Shiraz has pronounced notes of red and black cherries, red plums, dried Provence herbs and lavender with a waft of anise. Medium-bodied with a soft, velvety texture and plenty of red and black fruit in the mouth, it offers layers of pepper, herbs and spices in the finish. Very pretty Shiraz.
96/100 on Wine Companion tasting note. V - Published on 10 Aug 2016
Has established a consistent reputation as one of Australia's best cool climate shirazs, low yields (especially in 2014) and site selection all-important. Handpicked, partial whole bunch and remainder whole berry open-fermented, matured in French oak (33% new) for 14 months. A super-fragrant red cherry bouquet, with notes of mulberry, licorice and plum joining the vibrant red fruits of the palate, backed by firm, precisely framed tannins.

Delicious now, will probably be even better in 5 years. Recently tried the 2014 at the cellar door, almost as good. Not much of the 2012 left, so look out for the next one!
