Youthful Chardonnay displaying lemon and pears with a salty, saline minerality. All underpinned with cashew nut driven oak. On the palate the wine has a refined elegance with nuts, touches of melon, lemon and limes. Fresh zesty acidity and a long finish. Will age well and probably best to drink, like the 2018 is currently drinking, with around 5 years of bottle age.
Curly Flat Chardonnay 2021, Macedon Ranges, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
