Other vintages

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.

Bouquet
Dark fruits, roasted quinces and sweet cinnamon lead, alongside an edge of fresh tobacco leaves, forming a rich, fragrant and savoury nose.

Palate
A concentrated energetic palate with cherries and plum characters is front and centre. A long lingering finish, awash with soft, mouth coating tannins closes the palate.

Cellaring
Approachable now but undoubtably one for the cellar. An easy 10, if not 15 years lay ahead.

  • Alcohol: 13.7%
  • Closure: Screw cap
  • Maturation: 20 months in 100% French oak (32% new).

How is this drinking now?
Generous nose of black fruits with peripheral red, good spice and savoury support too, a riper style with great structure and length that’s still unwinding in bottle. Drink 2020-2029.
