"Grandioze wijn met een perfecte mate van rijpheid."

Van een wijngaard in Balhannah, de thuisbasis van Shaw + Smith. Lager gelegen dan Lenswood en net warm genoeg om shiraz langzaam en gelijkmatig te rijpen.

Net iets anders dan de jaargang 2016 maar even weergaloos.

De perfecte mate van rijpheid maakt diepe indruk. Dit heeft niet de peperige nervositeit van shiraz uit de koelste regio's en evenmin de mollige generositeit van wijnen uit de warmste regio's maar zit daar precies tussenin. De 'sweet spot' voor shiraz.

En wat te denken van de aandacht voor detail, de mate van verfijning, de textuur die zowel zacht als stevig is, de ongekende vitaliteit en de superieure tannines? Dit is in alle opzichten een grandioze wijn die geen enkele liefhebber onberoerd zal laten.

"From the home vineyard at Shaw + Smith's Balhannah winery and cellar door, there's a stunningly attractive ripeness to this wine, dark blue and purple fruit notes with kitchen herbal tweaks adding a heightened gastronomic appeal – dark mint, fennel and rocket pepperiness. Delicious medium-bodied structurals and fine tannins provide an equally sophisticated mouthfeel and finish. Superb wine." (James Halliday, 96/100 punten)

Quite rich with a bright red-fruit core and biscuity spices, leading to quite a rich and plush feel on the palate. It carries a spicy and elegantly juicy thread of red-berry and red-plum flavors with a fresh line of acidity. Juicy appeal. Drink or hold.

Significantly riper than the previous vintage, this shows its affection more forcefully through a broader mid palate, with an intense wrestle of blackberry and blueberry competing to win the upper hand. Firmer on the finish with sharp pepper seasoning the fruit sweetness. An intriguingly different Shiraz from a superior site.

Smooth by Rob Thomas started playing in my head as I tasted this. Excellent wine with so much detail, complexity, silken texture, spice lavishly draped over it all, savouriness and game meat richness, pure, cherry juice scents and flavours about that. Perfect medium weight zone, vibrant fruit character, all that perfume and additional flavour so very good here. And tannins, beautiful, beautiful caress of fine, lacy, gently puckering tannins. Top class stuff. Real pedigree. Moreish and delicious too. Kudos, S+S team.

The Real Review
95/100 punten
A very youthful appearance in the glass. Aromas are lifted and exotic with blue fruits, bouquet garni, sarsaparilla, spicy, nutmeg oak and a fragrant whiff of whole-bunch funk. The palate is mid-weight, precise and pretty, blueberry, dark cherry, cherry cola and a sweet kick of seasoned oak. The tannins are there, playing their part shaping the wine and contributing to palate length, which is very impressive.
