Embracing the cool climate of South Australia's Adelaide Hills, Shaw + Smith Shiraz represents a fresh take on Australian Shiraz. Fragrant layers of red berry and black fruit greet the nose along with characterstic black pepper. The palate is defined by well-structured yet soft tannins and fresh, balanced acidity. A well-defined and lingering finish leaves a strong desire for another glass.

A versatile and elegant wine, Shaw + Smith Shiraz is unforgettable when matched with well seasoned red meats cooked over an open fire.

James SucklingA distinct evolution has happened around this wine with a more fragrant, spicy, lithe and lively style taking shape here. Smells of ripe red and dark cherries, cassis, blackberry and plum fruits abound with plenty of spice and gently toasty oak. There's a distinctive graphite-like edge, and whole bunches shine through. The palate has immense depth and flavorsome reach with very neatly articulated, even and fine tannins. The core has plum and blackberry flavor, with a long, juicy and fresh finish. A step in the more modern, upbeat and delicious direction for this wine.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet/purple, the 2013 Shiraz opens to expressive red and black cherry notes enveloped by nuances of black raspberries, pepper, star anise and violets. Medium-bodied, soft and satiny, the palate is fresh and pure with great concentration leading to an elegant, long finish.

Wine & SpiritsThis wine starts out with a gentle caress to its texture, but there’s a little reductive stink and some iron-hard tannins. It needs air to reveal its pretty, dark berry fruit, opening from darkness toward floral notes and touches of spice. In the end, it’s that textural fineness that makes the most lasting impression. Decant it for duck.
