Curly Flat Chardonnay 2011 (750ml)

APPEARANCE
Bright, pale to mid gold.

BOUQUET
A nose that is at once both subtle, whilst still offering complexity. Fresh cut lime citrus opens the scene with white peach, grapefruit and floral notes following in support. Oak elements are in great symmetry with the fruit, providing a fine thread of spice which weaves elegantly into the more savoury elements of lightly toasted cashews, oyster shell & fresh straw.

PALATE
A palate that is at once lithe yet luxurious. Refreshing acid shines throughout the lime, white peach, nectarine powered fruit wave. Savoury layers are formed by lees contact and balanced oak spice giving further density and dimension. A finely textured raft of silky tannins gracefully carries all elements to a long and lingering finish. RELEASED AUGUST 2013

      “Bright, light yellow colour; very subtle restrained aromas, fresh and citrusy, the oak is almost invisible.  In the mouth it’s precise and fine, long and refreshing.  A superb wine with a long future.”
