The journey of M3 chardonnay is the journey of Australian chardonnay in microcosm.
Here we have power; here we have funk-driven complexity; here we have a long sling of apple-like acidity. It’s a fine, detailed, aspirational white wine, crackling with quality, endowed with just-enough texture and just-enough fruit flavour. There’s a coiled aspect to this wine; its best days are not yet with us, but they’re coming. It’s all balanced on a pin head, in the best of ways. CAMPBELL MATTISON

The grapes come from exceptional estate vineyards at Lenswood, Lobethal and Woodside, and the wine has always been known for its complexity, part due (although you mightn't realise this) to its use of mlf; fermentation in a cool, largely underground, cellar is another part of the explanation for the unfailing ability of the wine to deliver the goods.
