    Established in 1989 by Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith MW, Shaw + Smith’s aim is to make contemporary, high-quality wines that stand among the best in Australia. The wines are made exclusively from fruit grown in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, one of Australia’s coolest and most exciting regions. Shaw + Smith specialise in grape varieties suited to cooler climates such as this outstanding Sauvignon Blanc.

    This wine has become known as a benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. The style has remained fresh, aromatic, and pure over the past 28 years, with trademark pink grapefruit characters. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were sourced from the Shaw + Smith estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood at higher altitudes.  The vineyards are farmed sustainably to promote the best possible soil and vine health and the grapes are harvested by hand.

    Pale lemon in colour. On the nose, this wine has a vibrant pink grapefruit character along with green apple and floral nuances. It has nice mid-palate weight and texture with a fine acidity. Bright and aromatic.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
