Notes from winery
Bouquet Complex bouquet “ shows both the citrus characters of ripe. blood orange/pink grapefruit. together with some slightly herbal. cashew/nutty. mealy and lees characters. with subtle oak residing in the background. Complexity shows further layers with slight briny/oyster shell and struck match tones. A heady bouquet that is complex and powerful!
Palate Solid weight. yet only 12.8%. with generous sweet fruit up front. together with lots of natural acidity. This grows along the palate line. textured mouth feel. solid acidity. balanced with the ample juicy primary fruit. Seamless line and length. already exhibiting a long finish.
Overall Impression As with prior Curly Flat Chardonnays. defined by its origins young but complex. layered. textured. solid structure. yet it has relatively low alcohol (12.8%) It will build further complexity with time in bottle.
Cellaring Generous fruit allows for early drinking. but will age for many years. Probably peaking about 2016.
“Bright. gleaming quartz green. a super elegant wine that reflects its terroir in much the same way as riesling does. even though there are more winemaking inputs. grapefruit. apple. nectarine and mineral notes are the leaders. oak a vehicle and no more. Immaculately crafted. Rating 96 Drink 2020 ” James Halliday Wine Companion
