Crushed & Cured

Shaw + Smith, Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Australia, 2023


This wine is pale lemon in colour. The nose displays vibrant lemon, lime and pink grapefruit characters along with green apple and a dash of fresh herbs. It has excellent mid-palate weight and texture with fine acidity. Bright and aromatic, it has become known as a benchmark for Adelaide Hills and Australian Sauvignon Blanc.

Upon arrival at the winery, the hand-picked whole bunches were destemmed and gently pressed. The must was left to settle before being transferred to temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats for a cool fermentation to retain the varietal purity and bright fruit aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on its lees for a short period and was bottled early under screw cap to retain its vibrancy.
