2016 Curly Flat Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
95

Curly Flat has a unique style to their Chardonnay that embraces new oak, the inclusion of a portion of wine that goes through malo and extended time on lees. It’s this layered approach that gives such interest to the wine.

It begins with a satisfying nose of brioche, wood smoke, nectarine and almond before the palate exerts itself with a tautness of acidity that all the other elements oscillate around, white peach is the primary focus with some citrus flare in the background. The finish has a saturation of oak induced spice that melds masterfully with the fruit.
