Incognito Chardonnay 2007
The Adelaide Hills produces some of Australia’s finest Chardonnay. Since it’s first release (vintage 2000) M3 Chardonnay has quickly established a reputation amongst Australia’s finest. Sourced primarily from the Shaw + Smith M3 Vineyard at Woodside which was planted in 1995 and takes its name from owners Martin Shaw, Michael and Matthew Hill Smith. The 2007 vintage growing season was overall warm and dry. Spring frosts affected certain parts of the Adelaide Hills, hence quantities were down slightly. The grapes for M3 are hand picked, chilled and whole fruit pressed prior to barrel fermentation and maturation in French Oak. Some wild fermentation, extended time of yeast lees and partial malolactic fermentation impart further complexity and flavour. This is sophisticated, barrel fermented wine with pure fruit characterand restrained oak. Elegant and long living.
Shaw + Smith began over a long lunch in 1989 when cousins Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith decided to realize a long held dream to make wine together. They specialise in Sauvignon Blanc, a single vineyard Chardonnay, cool climate Shiraz and more recently small batches of Riesling and Pinot Noir.
