Curly Flat, Chardonnay, Macedon Ranges, Victoria, 2018
(at Davy's New World Tasting, 06 Sep 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2030
Drawing inspiration from Burgundy, this is a benchmark cool climate Chardonnay. The estate was founded in 1989 by former bankers Jenifer Kolkka and Phillip Moraghan and boasts some of the coolest vineyards in Australia. Layered aromatics: lemon curd, fresh croissants, hints of white flower, spice and a touch of salinity. Well-balanced palate that blends citrus, savoury and chalky mineral notes, with complexity from 14 months in new and used French oak.
