Shaw + Smith was established in 1989 by cousins Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw. They focus on varieties that suit the cooler Hills climate: Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Shaw + Smith own three vineyards, in Lenswood, Piccadilly and Balhannah. 

Growing the best possible grapes, managing vineyards sustainably, and valuing vine health, soil health, and low yields are central to the Shaw + Smith approach. In the pursuit of quality the wines are fermented, aged and bottled on site at Balhannah. The wines are vibrant, modern expressions of their varieties, their sites and the season.

Product Notes
Carefully pressed grapes were fermented at cool temperatures and protected from oxygen throughout. Some extra time in tank on yeast lees followed, helping to build palate texture and complexity. Fruit is sourced from the estate vineyards in Balhannah and Lenswood, complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers.
