2014 Curly Flat Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
95

Curly Flat consistently produce one of the best Chardonnay’s in the Macedon Ranges. It's on the richer side of the Chardonnay spectrum, but the cold, long growing seasons ensure there is enough acidity and structure to maintain elegance.

The nose gives developed flint and fresh nougat to varietal stone fruits that are backed by generous wood smoke like aromatics.

There is a lightness of touch to the palate that is quite remarkable given the layers of both fruit and winemaker derived complexity; expansive white peach is given a creamy lees complexity that flows into oak induced spice that’s kept in check by citrus acidity.

The finish gives purity and focus of fruit that is veiled by luxurious oak impact.
