Shaw + Smith 2020 Sauvignon Blanc

Such is the immense popularity of sauvignon blanc in Australia that it seems hard to believe that hardly anyone was growing or making it until Shaw + Smith took the plunge exactly 31 vintages ago. It is now an Australian classic with Shaw + Smith still making arguably the finest example in the cool-climate Adelaide Hills. This is an Australian summer in a bottle, an aromatic, varietal and sophisticated sauvignon blanc with plenty of citrus notes and tangy acid that is in no way over the top. It paired beautifully with pan-fried blue-eye travalla. $30.
