Shaw + Smith Shiraz 2013

Shaw + Smith produce a benchmark cool climate shiraz in the Adelaide Hills.  I’ve enjoyed various vintages of this wine over the years, and the 2013 vintage is a very good one.  Soft and beguiling in style, it has aromatics of pepper, bouquet garni and spiced plums.  Subtle flavours frame the palate, concealing an underlying power.  Between medium and long length with flavours in the pepper and plum spectrum, this is a very good release.  Good to Very Good
