The Shaw + Smith name is synonymous with the Adelaide Hills, being one of the first to plant their winemaking flag in the region. 

Vintage 2022 was welcomed for its long cool ripening and the absence of serious consequences from the forecast La Niña influence. Although crop loads were down on those harvested in 2021, they were generally close to average and ripened well with the benefit of good-sized canopies. Conditions during vintage were mild and dry and cool nights enhanced flavour development.

The cool ripening conditions produced Chardonnay with intense flavours and excellent balance. Aiming for elegance, restraint and the ability to age, acid is bright and there’s generosity of flavour. Typically it shows white flowers, citrus, and nectarine notes.

Its impeccable self. Flavours of pear and quartz, nectarine and cedar, a gentle floral element, a subtle lactose note. It feels powerful, taut and refined at once. This is not a smack-you-in-the-eyes chardonnay and yet its quality and intensity are clear. As with many of the finest Australian chardonnays now, this will need a year or three from release to start showing its best self. - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, 7 April, 2022, 95 Points - On 2021 Vintage
