Shaw + Smith is an alliance between cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill-Smith. Their aim is to make contemporary, high quality wines that are outstanding examples of their type made from grapes grown in the Adelaide Hills. Shaw + Smith specialise in grape varieties suited to the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay & Shiraz.

2015 is a new level for this wine, due to high-altitude grape sourcing and a high percentage of whole bunches in the ferment. Root-vegetable aromas among the cherry notes, which the wine has the concentration and power to accommodate. Outstanding! Rating: 97 Points; Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine, May 2017

A lighter, more pure and elegant expression from Shaw + Smith in 2015, this has bright cherry compote and fresh cherry, spiced strawberries, pastry-like and biscuity savory notes, gently meaty and peppery too, this has plenty of complexity and yet shows the purity of fruit very clearly, nicely delivered. Blue fruits as well as rose-like perfume, very subtle oak here. The palate has supple and fleshy fruit, tannins are fine and even, really sweet spices that are worked into the heart of the fruit, red cherry stone finish, very even, long and fired along by crystaline, vibrant acidity. This is their best pinot to date. Drink now and for 6+ years. Rating: 96 Points; Nick Stock: James, Top 100 Wines of Australia, January 2017

Light crimson; the bouquet is fragrant and floral with red fruit, spice and forest notes, the palate building on the scaffold of the bouquet. Here the accent is one excellent texture and length replaying the cherry fruit held in a savoury clasp. A wine that creeps up on you, the aftertaste a final hurrah.
