'The Curly' Pinot Noir 2015

APPEARANCE
Garnet with earthen hues.

BOUQUET
Ripe stems and powerful yet alluring nose of red fruits framed in a complex autumnal fragrance of dried leaves, twigs, undergrowth and spice.

PALATE
Fragrance now takes the tangible form of an energetic rush of plush fruit and finely knitted tannin that is at once lusciously mouth-filling as it luxuriously long.

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
Approachable now, a long future is assured in the cellar. An impactful and powerful wine that will deliver both intrigue and satisfaction over 10+ years.

    “From the oldest estate vines planted ‘92, 100% whole bunches fermented with wild and cultured yeast, matured for 20 months in new French oak.  This has had the whole shooting box thrown at it, but has responded in fine style.  Yes, the whole bunch are obvious, as is the 100% new oak, but the fruit steps daintily around the road blocks that might have otherwise been too much, and in doing so underlines its excellent length and finish.” Drink till 2030
