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.
Fresh violets & dried lavender entwine with strawberry and black cherry to form a fresh, fragrant peak. Aromas of leather, fresh earth and autumnal undergrowth merge with coniferous notes, oak spice & black pepper all providing a complex savoury base.
Luminous yet mouth-filling red threaded black fruits meet fine suede-like tannin that’s ushered along by an undercurrent of cooling acidity. Fine mineral length meets with an ethereal epilogue of persisting palate perfume.
Drinking well now with the best to come over 10+ years.
