Wine of the Week AU

Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $46

One of Australia’s great chardonnays. Incredibly complex with wafting nutty top notes, plus hints of oatmeal and citrus zest. The palate is bright and wildly intense with lemon delicious, white nectarine and nougat. Bright and superbly well-integrated acidity. Although this fine Adelaide Hills wine is completely delicious now, it is an infant and will grow and evolve with time in bottle. (Screwcap)
