Shaw + Smith - M3 Chardonnay 2020

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

Established by winemaker Martin Shaw and Master of Wine Michael Hill Smith in 1989, Shaw + Smith own two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, at Balhannah and Lenswood, totalling 55 hectares. The vintage threw up a number of challenges but February saw perfectly even ripening and resulted in grapes that were small, packed with flavour and higher than normal acidity. Grapes were hand picked and whole bunch pressed, then fermented and matured on lees in French oak barriques and puncheons. This wine has great concentration and the cool ripening conditions produced a Chardonnay with intense flavours and excellent balance. The acidity is bright and typically it shows white flowers, citrus and nectarine notes.
