2009 Shaw + Smith Aged Release M3 Chardonnay
Winewise Vol 27 Number 2 June 2011
This wine continues a highly successful line. Subtle cashew barrel-ferment characters on the nose with some spicy oak. The palate is finely structured, with a lovely creamy texture and long flavours, beautifully balanced by lingering, vibrant acidity.

Pale but bright straw-green; the bouquet has some fragrant blossom notes that merge into the multilayered palate with its display of white peach, nectarine and fig, then distinctly creamy cashew notes before what can only be described as seductive acidity on the finish.
