Shaw + Smith Pinot Noir 2022


The 2022 release of S+S Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir delivers all the pretty, delicate pristine red wild strawberries it’s known for but with added proportions of blackcurrant, fresh oregano, pink peppercorn and pomegranate. There is spice and funk here in a way that’s …well to be frank …a turn on. Like when you’re on a great first date and are surprised to find out the person is bilingual! Tannins creep up slowly and though not taking the limelight from the fruit just continue to support and show it off to its full potential. This may be the most multidimensional Pinot Noir I’ve seen from this site and I’m locking in that second date now! Drink with wild mushroom risotto and a nonchalant but very deliberate curl of the hair.
