Shaw + Smith, Adelaide Hills Shiraz, 6 x 75cl
Shaw + Smith, Adelaide Hills Shiraz was sourced from vineyards in the warmer, drier parts of Adelaide Hills, notably Macclesfield and from low yielding vineyards in Balhannah, near the Shaw and Smith winery. Soils here are shallow red/brown loam over schist and clay. The vines are planted at a density of 2,700 - 5,500 vines per hectare and are hand pruned with vertical shoot positioned canopies. Low yields of two kilos per vine were achieved by aggressive pruning and pre-harvest bunch thinning.
Shaw + Smith, Adelaide Hills Shiraz is true to style with particular opulence and generosity: a reflection of an excellent warm yet even season.
