Established by winemaker Martin Shaw and Master of Wine Michael Hill Smith in 1989. From our estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers. Shaw + Smith own three vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah, Lenswood and Piccadilly
Valley, totaling 60 hectares. Our aim is to grow the highest possible quality grapes from healthy vines grown in healthy soils.
Typically it shows a pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect
the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness. The 2021 has lemon, lime and pink grapefruit aromas and real persistence of flavor. Great balance with bright acidity.
Hand picked. Cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness.
Unoaked. Organic and Sustainable.
