2019 Shaw + Smith "Balhannah" Shiraz Adelaide Hills South Australia

SKU #1635829 96 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Spellbinding in its classy elegance. This one is for those who wonder how good cool-climate Adelaide Hills shiraz can be. It rolls, seamless, across the tongue with little gems of fennel seed, pomegranate, bergamot and anise left along the way, as the wine delivers plush fruit and a quiet but resounding tannic drive. Excellence in the glass. Inner quote mark (6/2022)

94 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Deep, dark red with a purple tinge and youthful appearance; there are red and black berry fruit aromas on the nose, a twist of black pepper and some smoked-meat nuances, the palate full-bodied and firm, also showing concentration and elegance, a vein of firm and gritty graphite tannins running through it. Good potential. Inner quote mark (6/2022)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Balhannah Vineyard Shiraz was sourced from the Balhannah vineyard (in Balhannah), at 380 meters ion elevation, planted on loam over clay, ironstone, quartzite and shale and north facing. This is a spicy, cool-climate expression of Syrah, and it nails the stylistic brief. This is structural and firm, but it manages the tannins with a splay of delicate fruit stretched out across them and soars across the long finish. Adam Wadewitz is a very talented winemaker, and so the quality of this "new" release range of single-vineyard wines came as no surprise. Very good indeed. Inner quote mark (9/2022)
