Typically it shows a pink grapefruit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the low yields and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness.

Expert Reviews

Has a bit going on, but kind of sotto voce. Youthful banana, vanilla florals, thistle and subdued tropical fruit. Light and fresh, lovely purity of acidity and flavour, light chalkiness, good length with a lime and passionfruit twang in the aftertaste. Good to drink. Excellent release. Rating 92 - Drink : 2014 - 2018 Gary Walsh - The Wine Front - 27 July 2014

Shaw + Smith 2014 sauvignon blanc does its thing from the outset, vibrant, lifted and exciting aromas, as if you’ve mashed together the variety’s familiar passionfruits and more distinctive house-styled pink grapefruits, resulting in great zing and tang as it hits the tongue, fresh, zesty and punchy with a cute little bubblegum moment on the palate before pithy minerality. Food: brilliant West Coast oysters Tony Love - Bottle Stop, The Advertiser - 19th July, 2014

The wine is olive green-tinted straw and has passionfruit aromas. Crisp kiwifruit flavour zips onto the front of the palate and gooseberry, lime and flint characters chime in on the middle palate. Mineral-edged acid refreshes at the finish. Food: Vietnamese spring rolls Score: 4.5 points - John Lewis - Newcastle Herald - 30 July, 2014

Twenty-five vintages on, this is still one of the benchmarks for Aussie sauvignon blanc, with tropical, citrus and restrained grassy characters on the nose and palate and a crisp acid finish. Enjoy by itself or with fresh seafood. Mike Frost - Frost on the Vine, Courier Mail Brisbane - 8 August 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


The 2014 is lively and aromatic with notes of passionfruit, nashi pear, and nettles.


On the palate there is intense flavor, with fresh, limey fruit, mouthwatering acidity, and remarkable purity. It is bone dry and unoaked to maintain freshness.
