A modern classic of Aussie Chard that shows you what a more moderate (less stinking hot) climate can do for their whites. This one is flinty, nutty and citric and everything we hope for in our best Kiwi examples, but with an effortless mineral elegance and restraint which, frankly, some of us might be envious about. But in questions like this, there's only one way to find out what you think...

Its Origins

Shaw + Smith began over a long lunch in 1989 when cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith decided to realise a long held dream to make wine together. They specialise in Sauvignon Blanc, M3 Chardonnay, cool climate Shiraz and Pinot Noir.

What The Critics Say

95/100 James Halliday

"Largely ex the Lenswood vineyard, handpicked, chilled overnight; whole bunch pressed, wild yeast-fermented in new and used French barriques; 9 months maturation. Makes its presence felt the first millisecond it enters the mouth, but doesn't threaten. A seamless fusion of white peach, biscuity oak and fresh acidity." Drink by 2023

17+/20 JancisRobinson.com

"Sweet, cooked apple fruit. Excellent kid-gloves oak giving just enough complexity. Mineral and lean on the finish. Expert! (RH)" Drink 2015 - 2020

90+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown

"The 2014 Chardonnay M3 Vineyard opens with apricot, melon and pink grapefruit notes with a buttered toast and cedar laced undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate delivers plenty of expressive fruit with a lovely silken texture, finishing with linering savory notes." Drink 2016 - 2020
