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.
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).
