"Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay is a wine of note. It’s a wine with a view, as in we all have one of it. It’s come a long way over the years.

I like my flint and funk but when I first opened this it was alarming. It was a matchbox factory. Some chardonnays need a decant and a wait. Give this time and it shows both power and poise, its grapefruit, custard apple and stone fruit flavours woven expertly with cedar, oatmeal, almond milk and matches. It has a quartz-like aspect, a bristle to its brilliance. It’s narrow but it’s not lean; there’s more than enough power to its fruit. It should drink quite sensationally, from appropriate glassware, in another 2-4 years." - Campbell Mattinson Wine Front

 

"Class is evident from the first aroma: a wonderful amalgam of stonefruit, yellow citrus with hints of yellowbox honey and exceptionally judged winemaking giving an overall sense of calm. Seamless palate: wonderfully integration with yin yang of richer nectarine stonefruit melding beautifully with crisp, biting lemon sorbet citrus. Depth, freshness, balance and an incredibly long finish make this an exceptional wine." - Vinonotebook
