Adelaide Hills, Australia

Shaw + Smith own three vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah, Lenswood, and Piccadilly totalling 59 ha. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Shiraz.

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. Hand picked and sorted. Combination of whole berry and whole bunch (20%) fermentation. Fifteen days on skins. Matured in French oak, majority puncheons.

Complex, aromatic, medium bodied with deceptive power, silky tannins and long term ageing potential. The 2021 shows black cherry, darker fruits, underlying gamey aromas with great flavour and length. 

 

13.5% ABV / 750ml

Shaw + Smith在亞得萊德山擁有三個葡萄園,分別位於Balhannah,Lenswood和Piccadilly,總面積為59公頃。這些葡萄園種植了在該地區表現特別出色的品種,包括長相思,霞多麗,黑比諾和西拉。

2021年的葡萄生長季節非常出色,是2020年的創傷後的喜悅。濕潤的冬季降雨為土壤提供了充足的水分,這流向了健康的作物。夏季溫和,成熟緩慢,讓葡萄的味道和強度豐富。手工採摘和分選。使用整粒和整串(20%)發酵。15天的浸皮時間。在法國橡木桶中陳釀,大部分為桶。

這是一款複雜,芳香,中等酒體,具有欺騙性的力量,絲滑的單寧和長期陳年的潛力。2021年的酒款呈現黑櫻桃,深色水果,底層的野味香氣,具有出色的風味和持久的回味。

13.5%酒精度/ 750毫升

This is fresh, well powered and structured, overtly varietal, neat-as-a-pin and yet inherently complex. It makes all the right moves. It’s all undergrowth, garden herbs, cherry plum and spices; I’d even say that it reminds you of the specialness of wine.

Shaw + Smith has always used sustainable, environmentally sensitive practices including farming individual blocks organically, using sheep to control weeds, facilitating beneficial insects in the vineyard and using seaweed fertilisers, and now use no herbicides, synthetic fertilisers or fungicides.
