Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay 2019
Orange zest, white-fleshed stone fruit, great integration of oak – all components of this wine that make for very pleasurable drinking. There is a definite degree of ripeness, but this seems to have been clipped at just the right time as acid is there in great support with a crytaline crunch to the finish. This really over-delivers in a category ($50 Australian Chardonnay) that seems to just get bigger and bigger each year. – Ches Cook, FWC.
