New Release Tolpuddle and Shaw + Smith



Without a doubt, the team at Shaw + Smith have always strived to produce wines of utter drinkability. Whether it be from fruit grown in at the Shaw + Smith Adelaide Hills holdings or in the Coal River Valley for sister label Tolpuddle it's plain to see that Chief Winemaker, and now joint-CEO, Adam Wadewitz has strengthened the wineries offerings even further and is a master of cool climate wines.

Today we have the 2019 Tolpuddle Chardonnay (always a favourite of ours here at MW) as well as a selection of single-vineyard wines and the M3 Chardonnay from Shaw + Smith on offer.

2019 Chardonnay
Usually $83 - Special Offer $75

A very impressive and seamless Chardonnay that is all class from start to finish. It bursts from the glass with lemon meringue, peach skin and floral aromas that are tight, compact and incredibly focussed, all supported by flinty, spicy oak complexity. The palate is equally explosive – bright and vibrant fruit that is embryonic with crystal clear fruit purity and lifted by savoury smoky, flinty leesy complexity. There is classic creamy chardonnay texture wound up tight by a bolt of Tasmanian acidity to provide the most complete Tolpuddle Chardonnay yet. Immense length tops it off beautifully – a clear candidate for this year’s top Chardonnay.

Shaw + Smith


2019 M3 Chardonnay
Usually $49 - Special Offer $44

Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay is in quite exceptional form.

Brilliant release. Great intensity both to the palate and the finish and with plenty going on besides. Flint, smoke, grapefruit and stone fruit characters but it’s the emphatic energy of the finish that really sets it apart. One sip and I was hooked, convinced, and in its thrall.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 96 Points


2018 Lenswood Vineyard Chardonnay
Usually $89 - Special Offer $79

This single-vineyard bottling, from a super cool site, has a very tight-wound feel. The nose is really wound into reductive territory with flinty grapefruit and nectarine aromas, layered with almonds and oak spice. The palate has a very sleek, elegant feel and runs so, so long with such fresh white peaches and pithy lemons. Spiced-almond finish. Superb chardonnay here.
James Suckling, - 97 Points


2018 Lenswood Vineyard Pinot Noir
Usually $89 - Special Offer $79

The pinot noir vines on this Lenswood vineyard were planted in 1999.

It feels brooding and sturdy but then, that was the story of many 2018 pinot noirs. This is though quite clearly a wine of both power and poise, its stewed strawberry, clove, forest berry and wintergreen characters pushing through to an impressively sustained finish. Tannin is beautifully formed, adding presence as much as form. Its brooding nature means that it’s not the easiest wine to rate right now; it’ll be easier when it blossoms.

2017 Balhannah Vineyard Shiraz
Usually $89 - Special Offer $79

Sharp-edged and serious, this raises a very different banner for what Australian Shiraz can be, from a cool, more elevated site. With its snappy bite of stalk and cherry, it suggests the slender refinement of Pinot Noir, but then the mid-palate rounds out with lush red berries and sprinkling of pepper in the tail. The nervy tension of this wine ensures the flavour keeps quivering in your mouth long after the last drop is drained.
David Sly, Decanter - 98 Points
