Curly Flat Chardonnay 2016

APPEARANCE
Pale Straw

BOUQUET
A complex nose of bakers spice & white florals, struck match with sea spray salinity. Notes of lemon curd, preserved lime and fresh fig form a nose that is rich yet delicate.

PALATE
Powerfully elegant citrus driven palate, with grapefruit leading the charge. Seamless structure and mineral acidity provide elegant undercarriage and length to the immediately satisfying front & mid palate. Delicious!

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
Drinking very well now, rewards await cellaring over the next 5 to 10 years.

    “There has been a recent changing of the guard at Macedon Ranges icon Curly Flat with Matt Harrop now installed as chief winemaker. Not only is this an outstanding example of cool-climate chardonnay, it also offers quite spectacular value when compared alongside village Burgundy, for instance. Power and elegance co-exist happily here with a brisk citrus zing and more restrained peachy notes. This is a wine with delightful architecture and plenty of length, allied to tension and poise. It's main strength, however, is that it is downright delicious. $46.”
