M3 now comes from selected sites over the Adelaide Hills, not from the vineyard previously called M3. Pale straw-green; it may be autosuggestion, but this has great freshness, vibrancy and finesse, the flavours pitched halfway between white peach/stone fruit on the one hand, grapefruit/citrus on the other. Obviously fermented in French oak, but is not obviously oaky.

Really good vintage. Really good wine. A winner for Shaw and Smith for some years, and this is absolutely one of the best. Comes off the Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Light toasty stone fruit and grapefruit with a creamy texture spliced with a subtle lees character and some understated minerality. Lovely balance. Rating: 96 Points; Ray Jordan; West Australian

A benchmark Hills example of the finest chardonnay expression, green to gold shine in the glass with remarkable clarity and shine before you even go deeper, slightly grilled peach aromas wafting, chardonnay fruit characters unfolding as you taste classic white stone fruits, delicate acidity underneath underpinning its more complex notes and textures. Totally seamless, there’s no greater compliment than to consider this utterly delicious. Rating: 96 Points; Tony Love; Taste

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. Rating: 95 Points; Toni Paterson MW; The Real Review

The 16th vintage of the M3 chardonnay has been dubbed by Shaw as one of the strongest yet. The fruit is sourced from the higher, cooler site in Lenswood and shows nuances of stone fruit, pure citrus, caramelised apple and toast. A savoury hit on the attack melts into taut lines of texture as peachy acidity drips from the top of the palate, leaving the long-lasting impression of apricot and a subtle nuttiness. As poised as a perfect pirouette. Look to drink it with prawn dumplings. Morgan Dunn; The Australian
