Curly Flat Reviews

2010 Curly Flat Chardonnay
Review by Campbell Mattinson
Published in The Wine Front , May 2012.
Score: 95 Points

A key chardonnay release from Curly Flat. Mostly wild yeast fermented. 100 percent goes through malolactic fermentation. 1515 dozen bottled.

An excellent show of power, persistence and overall finesse. A top-notch wine with complexity in spades. Needs time to integrate properly but the way this lingers in the mouth is an experience to behold. Grapefruit, sweet preserved lemons, oatmeal and creamy, toasty oak. The finish is smoky, minerally, cheesy. Love the way it combines fruit power and funk, oomph and finesse. A prime contender for Best Curly Flat Chardonnay yet.  Drink 2014-2020.
