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. For the Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2018 was a standout year. The growing season weather behaved well overall, giving well-balanced acidity and good flavour development in the pink grapefruit, lavender spectrum.
Shaw + Smith own two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah and Lenswood, totalling 55 hectares. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
