Description

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.

A perfumed nose of lemon & lime zest preludes the ripe yet focused white peach & nectarine stone fruits. A sense of wet stone minerality ripples throughout, providing cleansing contrast to more savoury aspects of fennel seed and lees-driven pastry notes all subtly framed by cinnamon oak spice.


Bolts of ripe white peach, preserved lemon, and grapefruit pith form the front and mid-palate before the mineral acidity pulls the palate long to showcase the fine chalk-like textures. Encapsulating the palate throughout is an assuaging creaminess driven by the 14 months on lees in 35% new French oak & 65% MLF. Overall this release is where flavour meets focus and while drinking beautifully now, it will see 10+ years in the cellar.

95 Points - "Portuguese tart, spice, grapefruit and lemon zest, maybe some nectarine. It’s a wine characterized by its creamy gloss and nougat, but with a ripcord of electric citrus acidity and tight juicy flavour. Creamy, cinnamon pastry, all the zest and tang, flecked with aniseed, and flinty river pebble things on a long finish. It’s really good, albeit very intense." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

95 Points - "Gee, this is sturdy and structured, yet appealing, with its almond croissant, lemon tart and biscuity inputs. Spicy oak lends another dimension, as do clotted cream and leesy characters, chasing juicy lemon and white nectarine. Livewire acidity drive it at every stage." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
