95pts James Suckling
So beautiful and polished with extremely soft and tender tannins that give form to this ripe and enticing shiraz. Plums and wet earth, as well as dusty and grilled-meat undertones.
Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium-bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power. The 2016 has intensity and generosity, showing darker fruits: a reflection of an excellent warm, yet even, season.
Decant and enjoy with slow-cooked lamb shoulder.
