Description
 
Lithe and deftly balanced, this is a bit reticent but tightly wound with spicy, delicately smoky pear, Winesap apple and lime flavors that weave together in ideal proportions. Shows depth and finesse. Drink now through 2018.WS92 The Adelaide Hills produces some of Australia’s finest Chardonnay. Since it’s first release (vintage 2000) M3 Chardonnay has quickly established a reputation amongst Australia’s finest. Sourced primarily from the Shaw + Smith M3 Vineyard at Woodside which was planted in 1995 and takes its name from owners Martin Shaw, Michael and Matthew Hill Smith. The grapes for M3 are hand picked, chilled and whole fruit pressed prior to barrel fermentation and maturation in French Oak. Some wild fermentation, extended time of yeast lees and partial malolactic fermentation impart further complexity and flavour. This is sophisticated, barrel fermented wine with pure fruit character and restrained oak. Elegant and long living.

Opening with a well-defined nose of ripe peaches, apricots and pink grapefruit with touches of ginger, cashews, cedar and struck match, the light-bodied 2012 M3 Chardonnay shows a great intensity of stone fruit flavors running along a lively acid line. It finishes long and toasty. Drink it now to 2017+. Wine Advocate 90+ (2012)
