About The Wine

The Curly Flat Chardonnay is a staple for those who want premium Chardonnay with a more 'classic' Australian styling.

It's not shy or reserved, it's a full-bodied Chardonnay proudly on display.

The wine spends 18 months in French oak on lees, building layers of creamy, toasty complexity through the pristine Chardonnay fruit grown on the Curly Flat vineyard.

It's a Chardonnay that drinks beautifully from day one but can develop well for up to a decade in the cellar.

If you're looking for Chardonnay with some style and curves, Curly Flat will be right up up your alley.

About Curly Flat

Curly Flat is one of the most iconic producers in the Macedon Ranges.

Established in 1991 by Phillip Moraghan & Jeni Kolkka, the vineyard was planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Over their prestigious history, the name Curly Flat has become synonymous with quality.

These wines have become cornerstones of many Australian cellars. The Pinot Noir is polished and powerful, the Chardonnay curvaceous and decadent.

It's an old school but good school operation. With winemaker Matt Harrop now at the winemaking helm, Curly Flat is entering an exciting new phase in its history.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"This has punch and weight in equal measure. Fuller-bodied with stone fruit, lemony tones, creamy and very moreish thanks to its restrained nutty/leesy flavours. There's complexity and a vibrancy to the acidity as it glides effortlessly to its long finish." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"It was released in May but the time to open it is not yet upon us. This is super young. It feels tight and lean when you first open it; it blossoms as it breathes but of course extra time in bottle is what it really needs. Macedon wines don’t like to be rushed. White peach, citrus, hazelnut praline, a certain chalkiness, a suggestion of smoked bacon. It’s not a show pony but it’s going to be an absolute ripper in time." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
