Style: Typically it shows a pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness. 2020 shows the hallmarks of a cool-season: floral and pink grapefruit aromas, intensity and texture on the palate and bright, lifted acidity.

Season: The vintage threw up a number of challenges, including frosts, poor fruit set and fires. That said, the weather during the ripening period was extremely kind. February saw perfectly even ripening and resulted in grapes that were small, packed with flavour, and with higher than normal acidity.

Source: From our estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers.

Vinification: Hand picked. Cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness.

Background: 2020 is the 31st vintage that Shaw + Smith has made. It has become known was a benchmark for Adelaide Hills, and Australian, Sauvignon Blanc.

Serve: A great aperitif or serve with seafood. Ideal temperature is 6-8?C.
