2017 Silent Way Chardonnay
Glimmers with smoke & fruit
Iconic winemaker Matt Harrop’s stints at Grosset, Brokenwood, Nautilus, Shadowfax and now Curly Flat showcase a producer with considerable experience both in life and wine. With their symbols of birds, snakes, earthworms, love and companionship it’s unsurprising the distinctive labels come from among Harrop’s circle of friends. They’re original artworks by Daniel Wallace, adapted for labels by Mel Nightingale.
Coloured a mid-gold hue with a green edge, texture and structure are the main performers here. Classic hallmarks of white florals, peach and a glimmer of smoky complexity.
