Pale straw-green; whole bunch-pressed, barrel-fermented with wild yeasts, and partial mlf completed; the result is a very elegant and finely structured wine, with white stone fruit, melon and grapefruit flavours, the acidity perfectly balanced, the oak restrained. Rating 96 - Drink by 2020, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2013).
Opening with a well-defined nose of ripe peaches, apricots and pink grapefruit with touches of ginger, cashews, cedar and struck match, the light-bodied 2012 M3 Chardonnay shows a great intensity of stone fruit flavors running along a lively acid line. It finishes long and toasty. Rating 90+ - Drink by 2014+, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, erobertparker.com (MAY/2014).
