Professional Wine Reviews for Shaw + Smith Shiraz Adelaide Hills 2013

Rated 96 by Decanter
A distinct evolution has happened around this wine with a more fragrant, spicy, lithe and lively style taking shape here. Smells of ripe red and dark cherries, cassis, blackberry and plum fruits abound with plenty of spice and gently toasty oak. There's a distinctive graphite-like edge, and whole bunches shine through. The palate has immense depth and flavorsome reach with very neatly articulated, even and fine tannins. The core has plum and blackberry flavor, with a long, juicy and fresh finish. A step in the more modern, upbeat and delicious direction for this wine. Drink now. (Suckling)

Additional Information on Shaw + Smith Shiraz Adelaide Hills 2013

Winery: Shaw + Smith

Varietal: Syrah

There are few red wine grape varietals in the world quite as versatile as that of the Shiraz/Syrah vine. These powerful darkly colored grapes are responsible for several wildly popular wines, and are used in the production of still, fortified and sparkling wines, all which carry its magnificent strong flavors very well indeed. This grape varietal is a robust one, easily adaptable to several different climates and terroirs, and yet has a strong ability to express the conditions it is grown in when it ferments and is drank. Most typically, Shiraz/Syrah wines are known for spicy flavors with a big fruity punch, and the fact that they can demonstrate the decisions made by the winemakers in their secondary flavors very clearly.

Country: Australia

Despite much of Australia being covered by dry, arid deserts and bushland, the southern regions of the country and islands such as Tasmania have proved to be ideal for vineyard cultivation and wine production. The fertile soils and brisk oceanic breezes, coupled with the blazing Australian sunshine allow the grapes to grow to full ripeness before a late harvest, resulting in hugely flavorful wines which appeal to a wide international audience. Combine this with the experimental and daring approach Australian wineries have in regards to wine production, and it becomes clear why Australia has relatively quickly become something of a world leader when it come to exporting their produce to Europe and America. The Shiraz and Chardonnay grape varietals have produced the most successful and broadly appreciated results over the decades, however, in more recent years wineries have begun experimenting with a much wider range of grape varietals, demonstrating how Australian wineries are continuing to adapt and develop alongside international palates.
