Shaw & Smith Lenswood Vineyard Pinot Noir
The Lenswood Pinot Noir is the top red wine in the esteemed Shaw + Smith stable. Sourced from their higher-altitude single vineyard in the Lenswood sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, this wine presents a more focused and linear style of Chardonnay than the more opulent Shaw + Smith Pinot Noir. The quality of fruit here is simply outstanding, as is the care taken during the winemaking process. If classy, cool-climate Pinot Noir is your thing, this is a beautiful Australian example that will find a very happy place in your cellar.

Shaw + Smith own two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah and Lenswood, totalling 55 hectares. The vineyards are planted to varieties that perform particularly well in the region, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
Site selection is particularly important in the Adelaide Hills, with its diversity of altitude, aspect, microclimate, and soil. We also use a number of different cultivars or ‘clones’ of each grape variety, which contribute different qualities to the final product.
