Shaw & Smith 2014 is one of Australia's best cool-climate Shiraz, low yields (especially in 2014) and site selection all-important. Hand picked, partial whole bunch and remainder whole berry open-fermented, matured in French oak (33% new) for 14 months. A super-fragrant red cherry bouquet, with mulberry, licorice and plum notes joining the vibrant red fruits of the palate, backed by firm, precisely framed tannins.
Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2014 released late September 2015. Drink to 2030.
2016 vintage is also available.Awards:
