The Shaw and Smith Balhannah Vineyard Shiraz 2019 is a complex, finely-textured Shiraz expressing the conditions of each vintage and the character of a unique vineyard site. Fragrant and lifted showing a mineral graphite edge. Notes of charcuterie. Structured with firm tannins, good for ageing.
”Spellbinding in its classy elegance. This one is for those who wonder how good cool-climate Adelaide Hills shiraz can be. It rolls, seamless, across the tongue with little gems of fennel seed, pomegranate, bergamot and anise left along the way, as the wine delivers plush fruit and a quiet but resounding tannic drive. Excellence in the glass.”
