A different expression of Curly Flat Pinot Noir. Inspired by Domaine Dujac who employ high levels of whole bunch along with high levels of new oak.
Moderate lift, brooding with secondary characters of undergrowth, dried flowers and French oak spice all offer savoury support to the layers of red and black fruits, which appear mostly in berry form. Exotic and enticing.
Medium plus in weight with lively acidity which provide great contrast to the mouthfilling, yet multilayered tannin structure that ranges from fine to firm. Complexing secondary characters again are prevalent, but only to serve as platform for the deep fruited core.
This is a structured Pinot Noir that is destined for a long cellaring life. It will take years to show its full potential but it is starting from a solid foundation. It has a cellaring potential of 20 years.

Bright med garnet with light brick hues. More savoury earthen core of forested undergrowth leads scents of cedarwood oak spice with mainly black cherry fruit in peripheral support. The initially dark fruited palate merges with the structural trinity of fruit/stem/oak tannin that are still evolving towards resolution. Good weight of nuanced fruit and gently rippling acidity throughout provides great frame and endorses the promise that more time will bring rewards. Drink 2022 – 2030
