2012 Curly Flat Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
94

Curly Flat is one of the most consistent producers from the Macedon ranges, with their annual release of Pinot and Chardonnay eagerly anticipated. The 2012 Chardonnay is textural and expressive with the hallmark Macedon Ranges acidity pulling everything together and framing what will be a Chardonnay for the cellar.

The wine is a lightly golden yellow in colour with a nose that gives honeyed stone fruits, subtle wood smoke and background floral notes. On entry there is an intensity of stone fruits and melon that benefit from integrated oak against lemon pith acidity. It’s this acidity that gives contrast to the fullness of the palate and provides prodigious length.
