SPOTLIGHT / SHAW + SMITH

download

This week we’ve seen a sneak peak of the spring breeze coming through and boy does it have us excited! Time to come out of hibernation and get your weekend adventures back on track starting with a visit to the Shaw + Smith winery in the Adelaide Hills.

Just a short 30 minute drive from Adelaide, the Balhannah vineyard is planted across 35 hectares with an elevation of 380m, meaning a cooler, wetter climate. Perfect for growing Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.

  

Established by cousins Michael Hill Smith and Martin Shaw in 1989, Shaw + Smith is made exclusively in the Adelaide Hills. They maintain quality control by ensuring all the grapes are hand-picked and the wine is fermented, aged and bottled on site. With this attention to detail it’s no wonder the wine at Shaw + Smith is described by users as ‘vibrant’ and ‘refined’.

Their Tasting Room is open daily from 11am-5pm, including most public holidays.

  

So how much will a tasting at Shaw + Smith set you back? For wine flights with local cheeses the testing, prices start at a mere $20. That’s great value for a day out with friends, experiencing 5 amazing wines over a phenomenal view of the vineyards. Bookings are a must for groups of 6 or more, call +61 8 8398 0500 to make your reservation.
