Shaw and Smith M3 Vineyard Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2018
Since its first release M3 Chardonnay has quickly established a reputation amongst Australia’s finest.
The M3 Chardonnay has a beautifully complex nose showing lemon, apple and white peach along with biscuit notes. The palate displays trademark M3 elegance and restraint with an extra dimension of creaminess through the finish. A wine of depth and concentration that balances generous fruit flavours with savoury characters and crisp acidity.
The Adelaide Hills produces some of Australia’s finest Chardonnay. Since its first release (vintage 2000) M3 Chardonnay has quickly established a reputation amongst Australia’s finest. Sourced primarily from the Shaw and Smith M3 Vineyard at Woodside which was planted in 1995 and takes its name from owners Martin Shaw, Michael and Matthew Hill Smith.
"Pale straw-green; it may be autosuggestion, but this has great freshness, vibrancy and finesse, the flavours pitched halfway between white peach/stone fruit on the one hand, grapefruit/citrus on the other. Obviously fermented in French oak, but is not obviously oaky." 97 Points - James Halliday (2015 vintage)
