Curly Flat Chardonnay 2015 750ml

APPEARANCE
Pale Straw

BOUQUET
Saline scents of sea breeze introduce the restrained, yet precise nose. Lemon curd, white peach, fresh roasted cashew with perfumed oak providing sublime frame of cream and spice to the fruit.

PALATE
An initially creamy, mealy palate merges with characters of lime, lemon blossom, white peach and hints of grapefruit all of which perform upon a stage of finely spun texture, mineral acidity. The confluence of these elements ignite a luxuriously long palate line, all serving to underline the longevity of this wine. Great balance.

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
While enjoyment can be found at present, the real rewards will come with cellaring, as a future of 12-15 years is assured, such is its power and length.

    “This is a strapping Curly Flat. The wine has undergone50% mlf to confer complexity, stability and poise on onehand; to retain natural acidity on the other. This strikesa creamy cord that parlays well with the wine's sheerextract, stone fruit and vanilla pod notes. The finish islong and emphatic, careening across a high pitchedscale of mineral crunch and layered complexity,auguring well for a long future.” Drink till 2028
