2018 CHARDONNAY, M3, Shaw & Smith. Adelaide Hills, Aus. (Half bottle)
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Adelaide Hills - a key cool climate region in South Australia.
Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay; barrel aged for 9 months in French oak (very little new wood).
Producer: Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw were true pioneers of modern, fresh, elegant Aussie wines.
Food Match: Drink as you would good white Burgundy - really benefits from being allowed to warm and open in the glass and then a perfect match with fish or (best of all) with all manner of risottos.
Old Bridge Rating: This is serious stuff; under-stated, fresh, elegant, the textured richness of Chardonnay coming through gently as the wine warms in the glass. It's a whole world away from the over-oaked horrors of the 1980s.
