Quick Overview

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.

Product Description

M3 is at the forefront of the ongoing refinement and evolution of Australian Chardonnay. We aim for elegance, restraint, and the capacity to age in bottle. The M3 shows the characters of the cool summer and autumn, with primary fruit notes of nectarine and cumquat, and vivid fresh acidity that provides structure and focus. Youthful and un-evolved at this early stage, it will develop in complexity of the next 5 years


This undoubtedly one of the best chardonnays in Australia. Serious and built to last, it’s refined and elegant and made with true craftsmanship, using wild ferments and allowing the fruit to shine. Stone fruit, lemon zest and grapefruit are at the heart of this white combined with subtle biscuity notes. It’s intense and weighty, balanced by fresh, crisp acid. Pair it with blackened flathead and tomato chilli chutney.


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.
