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 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday
"So much flavour packed into this chardonnay, but never loses focus or detail. Pristine and perfectly ripe fruit, a mix of stone fruit and citrus folded into creamy lees, and ginger notes with a liberal seasoning of integrated French oak spice. A fuller-bodied palate, texture and complexity with ultra-refreshing acidity. No point waiting." Drink by 2024
95/100 Toni Patterson MW
"Despite the warm year, this chardonnay has impressive reserve, with the hard-to-achieve mix of elegance and intensity. It is youthful and primary right now, with room to grow over time. A complex wine with bright, lemony fruit. The winemaking stamp is sophisticated yet subtle 22 AUG 2018" Drink 2018 - 2023
17.5/20 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming
"Toast and oyster shell on the nose with all the salinity and poise of great Chablis. Yet there is much more substance on the palate, not too dissimilar to the likes of Pouilly-Fuissé, in fact. Would be a great challenge to identify this blind! Really terroir-driven. (RH)." Drink 2018 - 2024
