Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2020
An Australian Sauvignon Blanc icon
Region | Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Grape Variety | Sauvignon Blanc
High acidity and distictiive green aromas (nettles, gooseberries, tomato leaf) deliver a crisp and aromatic wine style that has won the hearts of many drinkers who were after a 'ABC' replacement! With its roots firmly from the Loire Valley it is now successfuly cultivated in the warmer climates of South Africa and New Zealand
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
