These days Adelaide Hills has built a global reputation as arguably Australia's most exciting wine region… in no small way aided by the vast successes if Shaw & Smith. Bordered by Barossa and Eden Valleys, as well as McLaren Vale, the region enjoys a much higher elevation making it cooler and wetter than its South Australian neighbours. To assist in growing the very best quality grapes Shaw & Smith practice Sustainable Winemaking and are well on the way to full conversion to Organics.
2020 is another striking Chardonnay from Australia’s masters of cooler climate wines. Shaw & Smith craft this Chardonnay like Leading Premier Cru white Burgundy. The vineyard is hand tended, the grapes handpicked and sorted with whole bunch press... followed by fermentation in the finest French Oak barriques and pungeons on lees.
Smoky, toasty, vanilla bean, toasted sourdough and lashings of butter... all supported by ripe peach, nectarine and lemon zest. A rich, concentrated and creamy mid-palate with fresh peach, nectarine, buttered popcorn, grilled nuts and mealy seductiveness... intently long it fades away to a warm toasty finish freshened by cleansing lemon zest. A stunning Chardonnay that’s world class and would render similarly priced white Burgundy to being largely rather ordinary by comparison. No rush to drink early, it will live 10-15 years with ease in quality storage, but once tried it will be nigh on impossible to keep your hands off it.
2020 is another ratings juggernaut already with Five x 96/100 scores in tow. The tiny 200 case production makes this a rarity sought after by collectors. We nabbed the lion's share of NZ's allocation... $51.99 elsewhere... Fine Wine Delivery have come up trumps with a spectacular $41.99 price... purchases are restricted to a maximum of 12-bottles per customer. Complex, alluring and elegant... M3 is a wonderful expression of the best of Old & New World Chardonnay Winemaking. It will give you inestimable pleasure over 10-15 years if well stored.
