Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2016

Warmer vintage, yet no loss of finesse here for M3. My older brother had a black BMW M3 back in the day, it was head snappingly fast, as I recall. It got stolen from a carpark at my best friend’s wedding back in the year 2000, never to be seen again.

Pleasant level of stuck match sulphide, grapefruit, white peach, cinnamon and spice, almond etc. Fine, tight, slight creaminess and almond flavour, crisp exit, some grapefruit and green apple on a pacy and racy finish. Delicious wine. A little Country & Western here, and very good too. Was even thinking about 95 points.
