Curly Flat claims Macedon Ranges is the coldest vineyard site anywhere in Australia, so it's little wonder they chose to focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir when they established Curly Flat in the early 1990's.
Curly Flat's Chardonnay now comfortably sits among the top echelon of Australian Chardonnay and the 2017 vintage is a superb example of this popular style. Perfumed aromatics leap out of the glass with white stone fruit infused with fragrant lime blossom and fennel along with hints of struck match.
The palate is typically vibrant with plenty of white peach, pear, grapefruit pith and preserved lemon with lovely mineral acidity. Subtle French oak and creamy lees provide both a savoury and textural frame for luxurious length. In unison, these elements form a palate of great vitality while maintaining tension and focus. Another classic Curly Flat Chardonnay that is just starting to enter its peaking drinking window.
"95 Points. This has punch and weight in equal measure. Fuller-bodied with stone fruit, lemony tones, creamy and very moreish thanks to its restrained nutty/leesy flavours. There's complexity and a vibrancy to the acidity as it glides effortlessly to its long finish. 13% alc. Drink by 2027. Screwcap"- Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.
