James Suckling

Martin Shaw och Michael Hill Smith har alltid haft en svaghet för de svala och kryddiga syrah-vinerna från Cornas i Frankrike. Därför ligger inspiration för deras shiraz från de svala kullarna i Adelaide Hills, som uppvisar en allt större elegans för varje år som går.

Vinet har sedan tillbringat 14 månader i 1-3 år gamla franska ekfat och är varken filtrerat eller kallstabiliserat före buteljering.

Shaw & Smith Shiraz är en perfekt match t.ex. grillade rätter av lamm, biff och vilt. Vinet har en stor lagringspotential men har även i sin ungdom en utmärkta balans i en fruktig stil.

The Adelaide Hills

Although grapes were planted as early as 1839, it was not until 1979 that viticulture was revived in the Adelaide Hills. Over the last three decades the Adelaide Hills has built a reputation as one of Australia’s most exciting regions. Located in the Mt Lofty Ranges thirty minutes drive from Adelaide, the elevation varies from around 350 metres, to over 710 metres at Mt Lofty. The Adelaide Hills is bordered to the North by the Barossa and Eden Valleys and McLaren Vale to the South, but due to its altitude, the Adelaide Hills is significantly cooler and wetter.

Our Vineyards 

Shaw + Smith own two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah and Lenswood, totalling 55 hectares. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.

Site selection is particularly important in the Adelaide Hills, with its diversity of altitude, aspect, microclimate, and soil. We also use a number of different cultivars or ‘clones’ of each grape variety, which contribute different qualities to the final product.

Soil + Vine

Shaw + Smith is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, and is committed to the best possible soil and vine health in both vineyards, at Lenswood and Balhannah, and a third in Piccadilly to be newly planted in Spring 2020.

Shaw + Smith has always used sustainable, environmentally sensitive practices including farming individual blocks organically, using sheep to control weeds, facilitating beneficial insects in the vineyard and using seaweed fertilisers, and now use no herbicides, synthetic fertilisers or fungicides.

Organic practice has been a natural progression over time translating to, at its simplest, healthier and more flavoursome fruit. Shaw + Smith will gain organic certification for the vineyards following the mandatory three-year transition period.

 

The healthy soil and vine philosophy currently employs the following:
 
- No herbicides, synthetic fertilisers and fungicides
- Organic compost-based fertilisers
- Mowing and mechanical weed removal
- Shoot and bunch thinning, and vertical shoot position canopies
- Organic canopy sprays for disease control
- High density planting (5000+ vines per hectare)
- Diverse mid-row swards
- All fruit hand picked
- Native vegetation areas within vineyards
