Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2017
The follow up vintage to the 2016 that was described as "a stunning Chardonnay for the intensity and complexity it delivers..." and rated 96 points by renowned US wine critic, James Suckling.
This well-balanced Chardonnay is filled with fragrance. The nose allures with flowers, citrus and stone fruits opening into a palate layered with apple, almond, spice, fig and marzipan. Notes of toasted oak and cinnamon resonate at the finish.

The grapes come from exceptional estate vineyards at Lenswood, Lobethal and Woodside, and the wine has always been known for its complexity, part due (although you mightn't realise this) to its use of mlf; fermentation in a cool, largely underground, cellar is another part of the explanation for the unfailing ability of the wine to deliver the goods.
