Established in 1989 by wine loving cousins Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw. Michael was the first Australian to pass the rigorous Master of Wine exams, and Martin a Winemaker… has worked and consulted throughout the world - including here in NZ. Their Adelaide Hills M3 Chardonnay is benchmarked alongside Grand & Premier Cru white Burgundy yet sells at a fraction of their pricing. Talking iconic producers, Shaw & Smith are perhaps the best in Australia... especially focusing on iconic, cool climate producers. They have the Midas touch; all they do turns to Gold & enormous ratings... 98/100 James Halliday for this mesmerising 2020 vintage, the latest example. And their wines are for those seeking a World Class expression of Chardonnay and Shiraz... taste them blind and they scream of Europe... in the case of this M3 Chardonnay... white Burgundy. If a combination of the richness of Hawkes Bay and elegance of white Burgundy appeals to you... this M3 will prove a meditational Chardonnay experience at a mesmerising price. One to enjoy now with fatty pork, poultry and seafood dishes... or cellar for 10-years and savour its aged roundness and complexity.

Subtle smoke, vanilla bean, toasted sourdough with lashings of butter all supported by ripe stone fruit, nectarines and lemon zest.

A rich, creamy mid-palate with great concentration of stone fruits and stylish oak adding complexity. There’s abundant energy drawing out the palate to a warm, toasty climax. Flavours of buttered popcorn, grilled nuts with mealy notes and a cleansing lemon zest, add to the intrigue. A stunning Chardonnay that’s world class and would give many a white Burgundy a run for their money. No rush to drink, but it will be impossible to resist once you’ve opened your initial bottle.
