Curly Flat'The Curly'  Pinot Noir 2013 (750ml)

APPEARANCE
Garnet with earthen hues.

BOUQUET
The enticing fragrance of whole bunch ferment ushers in a multiplicity of secondary characters. Undergrowth, dried flowers & Xmas spices swirl both underneath and throughout the nose. A wine to be savoured and sniffed before being sipped!

PALATE
A veritable wave of red cherries, milk chocolate and dried flowers flow across the palate with lively acidity. Great contrast is provided as the intersecting tannins derived of fruit, stem and French oak blur into a cohesive textural singularity. The finish lingers long on the palate, fanning out into the expansive peacock’s tail.

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
While having immediate appeal, the cellaring life will be 10-15 years. With the upper and lower registers in such supportive harmony, it shows us again that in the right conditions, high percentage whole bunch has both merit and reward.

    “A stunner out of the Curly Flat stable. This is a pinot noir. Force of flavour, force of tannin, force of personality. It’s smoky, cranberried, spicy and complexity intoxicating. Cherry, undergrowth, game, garden herb and twig-like notes are all in there too. It will mature slowly, and exceptionally well.” Rated : 96 PointsTasted : Feb16Alcohol : 13.5%Price : $64Closure : ScrewcapDrink : 2018 - 2027
