Product Description

The 2013 vintage combines a grapefruit note with a hint of passion fruit. On the palate the wine has freshness, intensity and purity of true Sauvignon Blanc character. Bone dry and unoaked to maximise freshness.

Grapes were sourced from selected sites throughout the Adelaide Hills with over 50% from Shaw and Smith’s own vineyards at Balhannah, Woodside and Lenswood. Generally soil structures in the region are shallow, red/brown loam over schist and clay. High density vine planting with an average of 2,700 vines per hectare, cane pruned and with vertical shoot positioned canopies.

2013 was a fine growing season, with some warm days balanced by consistently cool nights. It was a relatively dry season, and grapes ripened a touch earlier than usual, with the first Sauvignon Blanc harvested on the 21st of February and the last coming in on the 13th of March. The weather leading up to harvest was mostly dry, ensuring perfectly healthy fruit.

The hand-picked, whole bunches were destemmed, crushed, chilled, gently pressed then underwent fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The wine was matured on the lees for a short period and was bottled early under screwcap to retain crispness and eliminate cork taint. It comes with the vintage information as follows: Vintage: 2013; Grape varieties: 100% Sauvignon Blanc; Region: Adelaide Hills, Australia; Winemaker: Martin Shaw; Closure: Stelvin; Alcohol (ABV): 12.50%; Acidity: 6.5g/l; Residual Sugar: 2.6g/l; Wine pH: 3.25.
