Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2018
It’s easy to bash Australian Sauv, but here’s what it should taste like – especially in 2018.
Super fresh and vibrant nose with grapefruit, melon and cut grass. The juicy palate balances out slightly tropical citrus with very fresh acidity. Despite that firm acid this is perfectly ripe too. It’s not meant to be a complex wine, but the definition – without harshness – is spot on. Yes.
Best drinking: Drink before the next one comes out (mid to late 2019). 18/20, 93/100. 12%, $28. Would I buy it? Sure would.
