Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power. The 2018 vintage is defined by balance and effortless flow. It was a great season for Shiraz with generosity, but structure to match. Decant and enjoy with slow cooked lamb shoulder. Ideal temperature is 16-18°C.

Deep, shimmering ruby. Expressive aromas of fresh red and dark berries, pungent flowers and smoky minerals, along with a spicy nuance that builds with aeration. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering spice-laced black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter through the back half. Closes on a gently sweet note, showing strong persistence, supple tannins and repeating spiciness.

Fragrant, with bright spiced plum and notes of violets and wild strawberries. Green tea, cedar and firm tannins pull things together on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 300 cases imported.
