Shaw & Smith M3 Vineyard Chardonnay

The Shaw & Smith Chardonnay has become one of the stars of Australian Chardonnay in recent years. Drinking the 2005 Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay demonstrates to me that this is justified.

This wine shows beautiful ripe stone fruit characteristics, it has quite a linear structure, but still good mouthfeel. The finish is gentle, but with enough acidity to give the wine a lift. At an age of four years, some complexity is starting to show, but the wine is still fresh.

It is important to not drink this wine at fridge temperature so that the richness of flavours can show.

Score: 93/+
