Situated in Victoria's cool Macedon Ranges, Curly Flat is a boutique winery whose ultra-chic 2006 Pinot Noir has been receiving a lot of press for all the right reasons.
An ethereal bouquet of genuine pinot sexual attraction greets the nose, laden with musky, perfumed scents of earthy red fruits, currant, game meats, beetroot and cinnamon with a hint of stalky goodness. The palate is absolutely packed with vitality and character, as its seamless marriage of supple, saturated pinot fruit and fine-grained French oak unloads savoury, earthy forest fruit flavours encased in a lively framework of brisk acidity and exotic spice. From within its great depth an undercarriage of meaty garden herb begins to emerge, projecting superb length of fruit onto an already exquisite palate.
ü+ Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant; in every respect. You can happily add my name to its growing list of accolades. Drink to 2015.
