Wine tasting notes

Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power. The 2010 has notes of blueberry and mulberry on the nose, and a palate that also shows dry spice (fennel seed), some earthy notes, and which has plenty of ripe, round tannins that are initially overwhelmed by the fruit, but which become more apparent and assertive on the finish. Welcomed winter rains replenished sub-soil moisture. Other than a spike of hot weather in November, the growing season was very mild and harvest weather perfect. Below average yields and cool weather resulted in intense flavours and high natural acidity. An excellent vintage!
