The follow release on from the all-conquering 2018. With a dearth of wine shows this year, it’s unfortunate to see if this release would have the same success, so for now it’s best to simply enjoy.
Shaw and Smith, M3, Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills, 2019
Pale straw lemon colour. Struck match, creamy vanilla hint, brioche/bread crust round-ness offset with white nectarine, grapefruit, rich lemon focus and white florals. Medium weighted, definite up front generosity of flavour while drawing tight and retaining intensity through the middle and back palate. Subtle grip and long drive.
RRP: $49 750ml / $26 375ml
