Shaw + Smith began over a long lunch in 1989 when cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith decided to realise a long held dream to make wine together. They specialise in Sauvignon Blanc, M3 Chardonnay, cool climate Shiraz and Pinot Noir.
What The Critics Say
95/100 James Halliday
"Largely ex the Lenswood vineyard, handpicked, chilled overnight; whole bunch pressed, wild yeast-fermented in new and used French barriques; 9 months maturation. Makes its presence felt the first millisecond it enters the mouth, but doesn't threaten. A seamless fusion of white peach, biscuity oak and fresh acidity." Drink by 2023
"Sweet, cooked apple fruit. Excellent kid-gloves oak giving just enough complexity. Mineral and lean on the finish. Expert! (RH)" Drink 2015 - 2020
90+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown
"The 2014 Chardonnay M3 Vineyard opens with apricot, melon and pink grapefruit notes with a buttered toast and cedar laced undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate delivers plenty of expressive fruit with a lovely silken texture, finishing with linering savory notes." Drink 2016 - 2020
