Winemaker Phillip Moraghan believes this is the best Curly Flat pinot to date. Perfumed and pretty, it is packed with cherry, plum, raspberry, toasty oak and spice flavours. Part of this was fermented with whole bunches – stalks and all – which has imparted a perfumed lift and a stalky vegetal character that adds an extra layer of complexity. There’s fabulous energy and tension to this – hallmarks of a great wine – along with silky-smooth texture, bright acidity and a finish that fans out and builds intensity as it flows along the tongue.
