- 97 Punkte JAMES HALLIDAY: "The colour is bright, the bouquet full of red fruits, darker fruit notes and delicious pepper and spice nuances. These characters flow through to the medium-bodied palate of Shaw + Smith’s most consistently outstanding wine, the ’15 vintage making it seem so easy."
- AUSTRALIAN GOURMET TRAVELLER WINE: "This is a gorgeously lush-fruited, seamless wine loaded with blood plum, black cherry and raspberry aromas, laced with pepper and other spices. Intense flavours, barely perceptible, but supportive oak, silken tannins. A model for the modern Aussie shiraz style."
- TONY LOVE - The Advertiser: "A leader of the Hills cool-climate shiraz brigade, both in showcasing the region but also wine quality, the S+S team source from increasingly higher altitude and cooler sites, select best clones, sort berries vigorously as well as using 40 per cent whole bunches to achieve such a lithe style, the perfume subtle and seductive to begin before a plump and peppery spiced, medium- weight palate. You go back again and again to discover unveiling pleasures here — lip-smackingly delicious."- 95 Punkte Huon Hooke: "The best shiraz yet under this label: deliciously intense with blood plum, raspberry, black cherry aromas laced with subtle pepper and spice nuances. Marvellous richness and a seamless, soft-textured palate which is fruit-driven, with barely perceptible oak. Drink now or cellar."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||From low yielding vines predominantly at Balhannah, in the central Adelaide Hills, and Macclesfield, the warmer and drier sub-region to the south. Hand picked, sorted and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and minimal working. Aged in French oak (30% new) for 14 months. 2015 was a remarkable vintage. Above average winter rainfall ensured a good start to the growing season and warm weather in late-December / early-January was moderated by useful rain on the 13th of January. The season concluded with mild, steady conditions and delivered fruit of wonderful quality to the winery.|
