Palate Profile

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.

"The fruit is bold, dark, heady and fairly spicy, and it is already into its stride with smooth flanks studded with 20% whole bunch intrigue. It is great to have Shaw + Smith nailing their Pinot Noir because their reputation precedes them"  Matthew Jukes - 100 Best Australian Wine Report 2022/2023 - November 2023

Critic Awards

Already a serious complex pinot, high-strung aromas of spice and forest floor providing the parameters of palate that builds intensity as it moves triumphant peacock’s tail finish. James Halliday.

Medium crimson. Intense strawberry, red cherry, herb garden, hint dried roses aromas and underlying savoury notes. Lovely pure juicy strawberry, red cherry fruits, fine chalky, hint al-dente textures, very good mid-palate viscosity, and integrated savoury/roasted hazelnut notes. Finishes slinky and long. Extremely fine with attractive colour, definition, complexity and volume.

A beautifully crafted pinot, as always, with focused fruit, subtle undertones of cedar and leather and hints of foie gras. It’s full-bodied, but not heavy, with plenty of tension and focus. Bright acidity with depth and length. Impressive.

Arrives as a fully-fledged pinot noir, complex and intriguing. Starts with a wealth of dark fruits, forest floor, bracken, earthy notes and woodsy spice, before launching into a sweeping, textural palate, glossy and even. Oak adds some extra creamy, spicy complexity and, boy it runs long.

This is a polished release, with varietal red berries fruit flavours splashed with earth, chicory and dry spice. It’s ultra primary now, as you’d expect, but it feels settled, and so it’s already drinking well. Fruit and the formation of tannin here though are its main quality markers.
