Australia

Average review score: 94,9

Suckling : 96   Decanter : 94   The wine Front : 96   Robinson : 16,5   Hallyday : 98  Huon Hooke : 92   

A very beautiful Australian Chardonnay with character.
Still young, he needs another year to offer himself in his best light. You can also drink it today, but it will need to be decanted for at least 4 hours.
Beautiful aromas of white peaches and especially citrus fruits are supported on the palate by a powerful and elongated acid structure, all embellished by a flavor / taste of flint and yeast which adds to the complexity. Tasty and refreshing.

Enjoy with a Caesar salad or roast chicken.

 

 James Suckling : 94/100

The Chardonnay 2018 M3 is an intellectual wine that will impress the palates of the most demanding Chardonnay lovers, while offering endless tasting pleasure. Aromas of white peaches, toasted hazelnuts, lemons, praline and gun flint give way to a palate full of peaches and citrus. It's a great tasty and refreshing moment. Drink it over the next six years.

Decanter : 94/100 

The high elevation, cool climate sub-region of Lenswood is the source of many of the Adelaide Hills' finest Chardonnays - including Geoff Weaver, Henschke and Shaw & Smith, with their tall single grape Chardonnay. range from Lenswood (£ 50) as well as this M3. With great precision and great sobriety, it has a piercing acidity and a great richness in stones and citrus fruits, with a real taste of wild yeast. Fermented and aged for nine months in barrels with stirring of the lees.

The Wine Front : 96/100 

The Chardonnay Shaw + Smith M3 is a branded wine. It is a wine that is the culmination of a vision. He has come a long way over the years.

I love the aromas of flint and "funk", but when I opened this wine for the first time I got scared. It was a matchbox factory. Some Chardonnays need to be decanted and wait. Once made, this wine then shows both its power and its balance, its flavors of grapefruit, apple and stone fruits skillfully mingling with cedar, oatmeal, almond milk and matches. . It has a quartz aspect, a silky sheen. He is slim, but he is not thin; its fruit is extremely powerful. It should be consumed in a pretty sensational way, in a suitable glass, in 2-4 years.

Jancis Robinson : 16.5 / 20 

Caramel, cream, apricot and peach. Succulent and expressive, and overflowing with generous fruit. A slight bitterness of foliage emerges from the very dry finish, but also a lot of character with the presence of flint, which adds interest. Very tasty and tight, with almost too much acidity. (HR)

James Halliday : 98/100

A well-proportioned wine, balance and elegance are inevitably part of the equation. There is a purity in the drive of the fruit that makes it unnecessary to describe the usual stages of vinification. It is the quality of the fruit, the attention to detail and the experience accumulated over decades that make this wine so special.

Huon Hooke The Real Review : 92/100 

Light yellow to medium yellow color. Discreet bouquet of almonds, nuts and slightly sulphurous - the fruit is somewhat reserved and little evolved, perhaps overshadowed by the presence of artefacts at this point. The palate is also slender and restrained, compact and not quite ready. It's a fairly clean, edgy and compact style today, although there is flavor and subtle complexity. To put in the cellar. It was better the next day.
