Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2023

The Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc has become known as a benchmark style for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. It has remained fresh, aromatic and pure over the past 28 years, with trademark pink grapefruit characters. In recent vintages the style has evolved through sourcing fruit from higher and cooler sites. Upon arrival at the winery, the hand-picked whole bunches are de-stemmed and gently pressed. The must is left to settle before being transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for a cool fermentation to retain the varietal purity and bright fruit aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc. Following fermentation, the wine is matured on its lees for a short period and bottled early under screw-cap to retain its vibrancy. Pale lemon in colour. On the nose, this wine showcases a vibrant pink grapefruit character along with green apple and floral nuances. It has nice mid-palate weight and texture and a fine acidity.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
