Brilliant release... One sip and I was hooked, convinced, and in its thrall.
About The Wine
Since 2003, the Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay has been their flag bearer for premium quality Chardonnay.
Sourced predominantly from their Lenswood vineyard, this meticulously farmed plot produces exquisite fruit. The winemaking behind the M3 is very classic. The fruit is chilled, whole-bunch pressed to oak and matured for 9 months prior to bottling. The quality of the fruit left to do the talking.
This wine has something of a cult following. It is loved for its combination of power and precision. Without question, one of the benchmarks for premium Chardonnay in the Hills region.
