Shaw and Smith Shiraz is vibrant and modern in style. The wine displays distinctive violets, pepper and spice characters. It is rich, ripe and juicy, yet maintains stunning elegance. In another 3-5 years, this wine will develop interesting bottle age characters whilst maintaining fruit vitality.
Emphasis on bright fruit. Pure dark bramble fruit. Dry, firm and dark with some char on the palate. Chalky dry tannins. Sophisticated. A little peppery. Long and fresh and dark.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Fragrant, with a noseful of black pepper and gorgeous fresh blackberry and boysenberry fruit that segues seamlessly into a lively mouthful. The finish is vibrant and doesn’t quit easily.” – Wine Spectator, October 2008
