Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Exemplary Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc handled with kid gloves, yes it speaks of region and variety, but does so sotto voce, like the learned elder statesmen it is. 

There's lemon, lemon balm, paw paw - an aromatic complexity we've come to expect. Moves up a gear or three on the palate, a lively and zippy expression that offers citrus based acidity. There's a chalky dryness as it moves through the palate, adding an extra dimension.

Sure (Shaw?) to be a hit. 92
