Adelaide Hills, Australia
Shaw + Smith have a long-standing love of Riesling and believe the Adelaide Hills can produce fine examples with ageing potential.
This is a Riesling that is both intense and textural. The 2021 vintage was a terrific year for Riesling with slightly larger berries that gave the wines great flavour and purity. Perfectly balanced flavours include exotic fruits, citrus and orange blossom. The length is long and profound.
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. A great aperitif or drink with fish and chips. Ideal temperature is 6-8°C.
