"Beware the siren with ruby-red lips. In a smoky room,
here she strides - confident, cool, arresting. Slender, stalky cherry
and a smear of blackcurrant bite spiked with crushed peppercorns. No
sunny smiles here, this is deadly serious. Leaner, finer and taut, it
marks a big stride ahead from previous vintages. This vision of
cool-climate Shiraz marks a new age of measured sophistication."

"Fans of Shaw + Smith Shiraz will no doubt be very happy with
the 2019 vintage. It's beautifully pitched and manages to
seamlessly combine quite ripe and fleshy fruits with subtlety and
a silky texture - this is a wine where it is a challenge to stop at just
Deeply coloured, it is immediately open for business with bright,
savoury and engaging fruits. There is blackberry, black pepper and high
quality oak with a nice touch of stalky complexity adding some detail.
This is followed by a ripe core of dark fruits on the palate with some
liquorice and earthy flavours plus ripe tannins that provide a good
backbone which drives a powerful and long finish. What I like most though
is its deliciously silky texture that makes this wine extraordinarily
drinkable at a young age."
