Curly Flat Chardonnay 2008

There are some wines you come across where you think: "I could happily drink that", and then there are wines where your first thought is often along the lines: "[insert expletive] why don't I have more of this in my cellar, where can i get more?". Yes, this is in the latter camp.

At five years, the wine has taken on a lime tinged golden aura. It glows in the glass, and offers lime brulée, a flinty periphery and a modicum of stonefruit. It's not about any of those individual parts, but instead the balance between the three, and the complexity harmonious complexity contributes to.

The palate shows a little tartness early on, it's finely poised though, with stonefruit and melon making way for a mineral lined edge. Texture is apparent, full in the mouth, more than just a line and length merchant. 

The finish is effortless, so unforced. I want more. 95 - Excellent
