Established in 1989 by Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith, Shaw and Smith’s aim is to make contemporary, high quality wines that stand amongst the best of their type in Australia.
Grapes were sourced from the estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers.
All the grapes were hand picked to ensure they were in pristine condition upon arrival at the winery. This ensured no oxidation or skin contact, resulting in less need for the use of SO2. Whole bunches were de-stemmed, crushed, chilled, gently pressed and then underwent cool fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The wine was matured on the lees for a short period and was bottled early under screwcap to retain crispness.
The 2018 vintage is the 29th vintage of this wine, and is true to style with accentuated florals and very bright natural acidity. The pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture reflect the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness.
