Shaw & Smith 2013 Sauvignon Blanc – Tasting Note

The Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc is always put on a pedestal, even within Australia’s key Sauvignon Blanc growing region of the Adelaide Hills in South Australia.  Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc is a consistent performer which fights the good battle against the marauding Kiwi Sauv Blancs.

Shaw Smith 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

In the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, luckily there is a distinct lack of ‘cats pee on a gooseberry bush’ here.  Instead lots of ripe citrus and fresh tropical fruit.  Crisp acidity to slack any thirst – especially at about 3:30pm on a warm day.  But also packed full of fruit – citrus and tropical pineapple and passionfruit.  Backed up by a hint of grassy herbaceousness (but no gooseberry bush, or cats pee for that matter).
