Shaw + Smith "M3" 2020 Chardonnay

$ 38.99

Winemaker Notes

Aiming for elegance, restraint and the ability to age, acid is bright and there’s generosity of flavor. Typically it shows white flowers, citrus, and nectarine notes.

This wine is superb alongside grilled Pacific Sea Bass with a caper butter sauce.

Critical Acclaim

JS 96
James Suckling

Ripe peach, lemon and plenty of toasted hazelnut oak, sitting on a mix of flint and wet stones. The palate has great density and depth with concentrated peach and lemon. A little pastry, too. Smooth, with bright acidity. Impressive depth and balance here. Drink or hold.

D 94
Decanter

Savory notes take the lead in a striking tenor voice. Lacks the feistiness of previous vintages, but 2020 was hardly kind in the Hills. Clean, firm, proud and very well built, this is the elegant, talented diplomat that shows no emotion.
