Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2021 (Adelaide Hills)
Tasting NotesThe Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2021 vintage has lemon, lime and pink grapefruit aromas and real persistence of flavour. Great balance with bright acidity. "A very strong vintage for this popular Adelaide Hills sauvignon, it sits in a deliciously ripe yet fresh zone and is bathed in peach, nectarine, green-mango and passion-fruit aromas and flavours. Delivered in straight-up, drinkable mode on release."

Shaw + Smith own three vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah, Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley, totalling 60 hectares. Our aim is to grow the highest possible quality grapes from healthy vines grown in healthy soils. The 2021 is the 32nd vintage that Shaw + Smith has made of their highly acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc. It has become known as a benchmark for Adelaide Hills, and Australian, Sauvignon Blanc. The growing season for the 2021 vintage was terrific, a joy after the traumas of 2020. Soaking winter rains gave us plenty of moisture in the soil, and that flowed into healthy crops. The summer was mild, with slow ripening giving the grapes lots of flavour and intensity. 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. From our estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers. Hand picked. Cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness.
