Curly Flat Pinot Noir represents our passion as winegrowers to faithfully capture the essence of our remarkable site coupled with the unique expression that is derived from each vintage.
Please note the 2015 Curly Flat Pinot Noir is now only available in 375mls.
Violets, black cherries, and wild raspberry. Scents of undergrowth and potpourri enhance complexity to form a rich, fragrant, and savoury nose.
A luscious energetic palate awash with fine tannin coalesces into a scaffold of impressive structure. Kirsch characters intersect with cocoa and black pepper. Swirls of vanillin spice flourish to a lingering finish.
Approachable now but undoubtedly one for the cellar. An easy 10, if not 15 years lay ahead.
How is this drinking now?
Red and black cherry fruit, more of the former being bedded down with autumnal savoury charm. Impressively silky mouthfeel as good structure and length assuredly chimes in. Drink 2020-2026.
