Shaw & Smith Pinot Noir 2021
Complex, aromatic, medium bodied with deceptive power, silky tannins and long term ageing potential. The 2021 shows black cherry, darker fruits, underlying gamey aromas with great flavour and length.
Predominantly from our Lenswood Vineyard, at 455–500 metres elevation. Undulating with east and west facing aspects, the soils are brown loams over clay with broken shale on the ridges. The vineyard was planted in 1999.
Whatever the reason, we think our Shaw + Smith Pinot Noir continues to get better and better. Our first release was in 2007.
