Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2021
23,95 €(1 l = 31,93 €)
Pink Grapefruit meets ganz dezentes Gras. Ich hatte schon wieder fast vergessen, wie er einen vom ersten Schluck an begeistert. Neues Wort dafür - edelsüffig! Er zeigt den Holzmonstern die kalte Schulter. Brillante Fruchtnoten. Holunder, Maracuja, schwarze Johannisbeeren, Guave, Zitrusfrüchte. Etwas Florales. Kräuter. Schafgarbe? Geissblatt? Herrlich! Alles mit perfekter Eleganz. Duftig, dahinter komplex und doch, oh so leichtfüssig. Erinnert im Aroma an rosa Grapefruit, Passionsfrucht und Zitronengras. Er ist wunderbar klar und ein perfekter Begleiter besonders für die minimalistische asiatische Küche, wie ich sie liebe.
Natürlich passen bei so einem vielseitigen Essensbegleiter viele Dinge, aber vor allem Meeresfrüchte, frische Austern, Persimonen-Salat, Mascarpone-Lachs-Pizza, Sashimi vom Lachs mit Ingwer, Shoyu und Wasabi, Tagliolini mit Scampi und Zucchini und der Marcella Hazan Klassiker Pasta und Pesto mit grünen Bohnen.

Winemaker´s Comment: 100% hand picked.Sourced from cool, high elevation vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. Meticulous viticulture, with cane pruning, vertical shoot positioning, and yields limited through shoot and bunch thinning to increase fruit intensity. Fermented cool (10-12°C) in stainless steel followed by a short maturation on lees. Early bottling to retain freshness. Produced using sustainable practices. In transation to Organic vineyards.
Tasting Notes: The 2021 has lemon, lime and pink grapefruit aromas and real persistence of flavour. Great balance with bright acidity.
Vintage: The growing season for the 2021 vintage was terrific, a joy after the traumas of 2020. Soaking winter rains gave us plenty of moisture in the soil, and that flowed into healthy crops. The summer was mild, with slow ripening giving the grapes lots of flavour and intensity.
Your favourite recipe for this wine: Barbecued prawns with avocado pico de gallo. A great aperitif or serve with seafood. Ideal temperature is 6-8°C. Wir mögen ihn besonders zu Sashimi vom Lachs mit Ingwer, Shoyu und Wasabi.
Jeni Port James Halliday Wine Companion
"Hand-picked fruit, cool fermentation in stainless steel, maturation on lees and early bottling. A model of consistency over 32 vintages, Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc continues to lead the way in 2021 with a combination of fruit intensity and a seeming lightness of being. It's told in 2 parts; the 1st is exuberant tropicals, citrus and herbal interplay, but it quickly moves into a state of serious intensity, filigree acidity and mealy texture. That lasting impression saturates the tastebuds and stays with you. 96 points"
Christina Pickard - Wine Enthusiast - Januart 2022
This is a particularly delicious bottling from one of the Adelaide Hills region's most well-known names. Bright peach and citrus fruit bounce from the glass, with more delicate floral notes just behind. There's almost none of the green veg pungency found in many New World Sauvignons. The palate offers equally vibrant fruit flavors. It glides along a creamy texture, finishing long and refreshing. 93 points.
Tyson Stelzer - Wine Buisness Monthly - January 2022
Shaw + Smith’s famous Sauvignon continues to hit new heights, and the cool 2021 season draws out its refreshing side without wanting for anything in power or punch. The full spectrum of Sauvignon character is laid out in a grand panorama spanning everything from cut grass to sweet gooseberries and passionfruit, centred emphatically on lemon citrus. Grand length and concentration. 94 points
Campbell Mattinson – The Wine Front – January 2022
Varietal flavours are clear but then so too is texture and restraint. This is a pretty sophisticated release. Lemongrass and tropical fruit flavours meet gunmetal, blackcurrant bud and mango skin. It carries all this flavour/texture and yet it remains impeccably neat. 93 Point
Ozwinereview.com - Andrew Graham - October 2021
Handpicked fruit has always been a hallmark here, reflecting the attention to detail that flows across the whole Shaw & Smith empire. There is also a contained generosity, with green melon, some sort of tropical fruit, and crisp – but not harsh – acidity. Maybe less grassy and ‘typical’ than some years, and feels better for it. It’s not a complex wine, but doesn’t pretend too – it’s just a good drink. 92/100
Ray Jordan - The Western Australian - September 2021
Cracking good vintage has produced this cracking good savvy. These guys were one of the first to get this thing called sauvignon blanc happening and it is continuing to be an incredibly reliable and popular wine. Crisp, pure and immensely flavoursome. Restrained tropical fruit and a twist of lemon to lift and there you go. Oh, and a sprinkle of dried herbs. 93/100
Erin Larkin - The Post - September 2021
Handpicked, cool ferment in stainless followed by maturation on lees, this is the 32nd vintage of the S+S SB. It is a wonderful vintage that is cool, long and restrained. A touch of sweat, thiol and funk on the nose alongside oodles of sweet sugar snap peas, crunchy spring florals and iceberg lettuce. On the palate there is the addition of juniper, cassis, white currant, and lemon pith. Another great release - this wine is iconic for a reason.
94 Points Angus Hughson - Wine Pilot - September 2021
The wine that put Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc on the global map, and it is in stellar form with not only bright, pure and powerful fruits but also fine detail and complexity. Primarily passionfruit and honeydew melon aromas with hints of green bean and citrus provide a delicious youthful vitality and freshness. It is followed by quite a full and generous palate for sauvignon blanc underscored by tangy acidity. This is a sauvignon blanc with plenty of flavour that is finely balanced and finishes with subtle herbal complexity. Enjoy with King George Whiting and gently steamed greens. 93 Points
Tony Love - InDaily - July 2021
Even with this wine’s remarkable consistency over 30 years, it still shows vintage variation when coming from a cooler season such as the 2021, ripening slowly for heightened aromatics sitting somewhere between snow pea and citrus, including leaf, flower and fruit. The flavour senses bring all that together with peppery spice and a touch of sorrel, entertaining the palate with great, pithy grapefruit texture. In founder Martin Shaw’s words: “It’s as good a Sauvignon as we’ve put out in recent years. We’re thrilled.” And so they should be.
Nick Stock – jamessuckling.com – June 2021
A very strong vintage for this popular Adelaide Hills sauvignon, it sits in a deliciously ripe yet fresh zone and is bathed in peach, nectarine, green-mango and passion-fruit aromas and flavours. Delivered in straight-up, drinkable mode on release. 94 points
Winsor Dobbin - Ciao - August 2021
The 2021 vintage has just been released - and it remains a market leader. Think grapefruit, citrus and guava notes with very brisk acidity. A wine to be enjoyed in all its youthful playfulness.
