Shaw + Smith Shiraz 2020 (6 Bottles) Adelaide Hills

by Red+White Cellar 0 orders



Medium bodied with vibrant fruit and spice.

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 rollercoaster ride for the vineyard team in 2020, as we were blessed lots of special weather – a dash of hail, a touch of frost, some hotness and coldness. In the end we picked healthy grapes of excellent quality, just not very many of them.



About Shaw + Smith Wines

Shaw + Smith was established in 1989 by cousins Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw. They focus on varieties that suit the cooler Hills climate: Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Shaw + Smith own three vineyards, in Lenswood, Piccadilly and Balhannah.

Growing the best possible grapes, managing vineyards sustainably, and valuing vine health, soil health, and low yields are central to the Shaw + Smith approach. In the pursuit of quality the wines are fermented, aged and bottled on site at Balhannah. The wines are vibrant, modern expressions of their varieties, their sites and the season.

Shaw + Smith’s first vintage was in 1990 and in 1999 they purchased a property at Balhannah, where they planted vines, and built the winery and tasting room in time for the 2000 vintage. As the business has grown Michael and Martin have built a formidable team – including Master of Wine and Joint CEO David LeMire, Senior Winemaker and Joint CEO Adam Wadewitz, CFO Grant Lovelock and Group Viticulturist Murray Leake.
