Shaw & Smith 2015 Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills
James Suckling 95 Rating
A lighter, more pure and elegant expression from Shaw & Smith in 2015, this has bright cherry compote and fresh cherries – not to mention spiced strawberries, pastry-like and biscuity savory notes, gently peppered meat and all sorts of other complexity. Even so, this shows the purity of fruit very clearly. It's nicely delivered. There are blue fruits as well as rose-like perfumes. Very subtle oak here. The palate has supple and fleshy fruit, tannins that are fine and even and really sweet spices that are worked into the heart of the fruit. Red-cherry-stone finish. Very even, long and fired along by crystaline, vibrant acidity. This is their best Pinot to date.
