2019 Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 375ml Adelaide Hills – From Piccadilly, Lobethal and our Lenswood Vineyard, at 455–500 metres elevation. Undulating with east and west facing aspects, the soils are brown loams over clay with broken shale on the ridges. The vineyard was planted in 1999. Hand picked and whole bunch pressed. Fermented and matured on lees in French oak barriques and puncheons.
Primary fruit notes of nectarine and cumquat, and vivid fresh acidity that provides structure and focus.
Youthful and unevolved at this early stage, it will develop in complexity over the next 5 years.
Enjoy by itself or with seafood dishes such as grilled king whiting with a caper butter sauce.
