PALATE

Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power. The 2019 vintage exhibits balance and elegance, with concentrated red and blue fruit, perfumed aromatics and great flow on the palate.

FOOD MATCHING

Decant and enjoy with slow cooked lamb shoulder.

VINIFICATION

Hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches (40%) in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and minimal working. Aged in French oak for fourteen months, of which one third was new.

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2019 growing season was one that challenged even the most experienced and well equipped vignerons. Those that made the most of it produced small crops of very clean fruit with wonderful flavour and intensity. Natural acidity is a feature in all of the wines despite the warm dry summer.

 

CELLARING POTENTIAL

Has the concentration and structure to develop fine tertiary characters in bottle over the next 15 years.
