Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Challenging conditions up in the Hills in 2020, yet the S+S team has again crafted a Sauvignon Blanc that stands tall amongst producers of the variety in Australia.

It’s nigh crystal clear in glass, yet approach it with a different sense and it offers the unmistakable tropical tinges that one comes to expect from an example such as this. It’s passionfruit, guava and hints of blackcurrant leaf luring in the imbiber.

Rich, playful in the mouth, acid seems dialled back a touch - even though it still clocks in at 12.5%. The well handled phenolics perhaps just providing a foil that provides a finish of more than satisfactory conclusion. 92
