Curly Flat Vineyards - Chardonnay Vintage 2015
Curly Flat has been one of Australia's long time favourite Pinot Noirs and we've keenly observed the reputation of this Macedon Ranges winery continue to soar.
Our truly cool climate ensures an sublime, yet complex expression of Chardonnay that speaks with purity of time and place.
"94 Points. Latent Power. A Curly Flat signature. There's a deep pool of fruit sitting deep in the palate, not drowning, not waving, just resting there, waiting for time to pull back the covers. Spicy/creamy oak, lemon curd, grapefruit and white peach, a sheet or sweet cedarwood tucked neatly about it all. This is chardonnay in straw-coloured guise, and yet it feels young; the real evolve is still ahead of us. it will come. it will be worth the wait. Oh the texture and the length. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front"
"95 Points. 50% mlf has conferred complexity, stability and poise on one hand, and retained natural acidity on the other. This strikes a creamy chord that parlays well with the wine's sheer extract, stone fruit and vanilla pod notes. The finish is long and emphatic, careening across a high-pitched sole of mineral crunch and layered complexity. James Halliday, Wine Companion"
Sea breeze scents introduce the restrained, yet focused nose. Lemon curd, white peach, fresh roasted cashew with perfumed oak providing a sublime frame of cream and spice to the fruit.
An initially creamy, mealy palate lays solid stage for the characters of lime, lemon blossom and white peach. Finely spun texture and mineral acid ignite a luxuriously long palate line that pronounces the longevity of this wine. Great balance.
