Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2018, Adelaide Hills
Pedigree. Iconic. Amongst the nations best Chardonnays. Perhaps this vintage with two trophies, two gold medals, Halliday gold and 94 points Campbell Mattinson Wine Front are the only words that need to be said. “…It has a quartz-like aspect, a bristle to its brilliance.”
Hand-picked, part fermented with wild yeast, some whole bunch, matured for 12 months in French barriques (25% new). Excellent colour, deep and clear; all the plum and cherry all-sorts you could wish for, discretely supplied by fine tannins and oak.
