2007 Curly Flat Chardonnay, Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia

Wine Drover

Purchased from Nicks in 2008 (still has $39.99 price tag attached), opened 9 Nov 13. Lovely light gold colour, intense and fresh Burgundian nose of toasty oak, cantaloupe and passion fruit. Rich and mouth filling on the palate with vanillan oak, peach, grapefruit and lively acidity and nice minerality. Secondary honey and caramel characters emerging. A delightful wine, enjoyed at lunch with chilli prawn salad with crumbled St Agur Cheese and balsamic. Perfect match! With a Stelvin cap, this Curly Flat can keep quite a few more years. Rating 94/100 (My wife felt I was a bit harsh and gave it a 96/100)

Day 2.  A great sunny day by the sea to finish the Curly Flat. Still fresh with honey and citrus nose and a hint of struck match. The palate was not quite as rich and creamy as Day 1 but still with lovely texture and balance…
