Curly Flat Chardonnay 2010

APPEARANCE
Clear, brilliant, pale gold with green tinge

BOUQUET
Generous and complex, with layers of primary fruit and secondary characters. Ripe stone fruit; white peach, nectarine, honeydew and grapefruit. Smokey oak, cashew, orange blossom, oatmeal and fresh honeycomb.

PALATE
Medium plus in weight, dry, yet with mouth-filling fruit sweetness. Complexity of bouquet flows through to palate. Textured with harmonious balance of fruit and oak, knitted together by firm yet juicy acidity that drives a lingering palate.

    Bright youthful light golden colour. Immediately aromatic, fresh and complex with almond, pear, citrus and almost patisserie fruit characters.  Dry and mid weight with firm acidity and beautiful fruit concentration backed by French coconut ice oak likely to come into better balance with time in the bottle. Finishes with excellent length, drying acidity making for a wine likely to reward 8 to 10 years in bottle. Benchmark modern Australian Chardonnay and perhaps the best yet from the team at Curly Flat.
