Curly Flat has been one of our long-time favourite Australian Pinot Noirs and we've keenly observed the reputation of this Macedon Ranges winery continue to soar. The 2015 Curly Flat Pinot Noir is the 18th vintage released, and as usual this is another epic example of Australian Pinot Noir. Only very limited stocks are available.
"95 Points. Curly Flat Pinot Noir is almost always its own beast. As indeed are all the top-shelf players of the Macedon region. It’s the sternest, crunchiest, most brooding Curly Flat Pinot Noir I can recall. It’s routinely a wine of heft, and cellarworthiness, but this release is a rock. Tannin, acid, fruit and oak all combine to powerful effect. It’s simultaneously slippery smooth, creamy in fact, and surly; it’s like an approaching cold front: beautiful, intense, intimidating. The colour is not strong but no matter. We have spice, alpine herbs, orange rind and stewed black cherries. We have acidity forming a clear stream. We have sets of tannin. This is a monty for the cellar. Tasted: Jul17 Alcohol: 14.2% Price: $56 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2028+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
