About The Wine
While the Sauvignon Blanc may get the lion's share of attention from the public, it's not the only crisp dry white in the Shaw + Smith arsenal.
The Riesling at S + S flies a little under the radar but it's absolutely worth exploring. The cool nights and high altitude in Lenswood makes for the perfect place to grow a clean, pure version of the variety.
They make this in a dry style, looking for citrus and floral aromatic with a long, fine line of acidity. You can drink it now, you can cellar it, it's a great each way bet.
