Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2016
Pinot Noir »
Good crimson-purple hue, although not 100% bright; as ever, a complex and powerful wine, with black cherry and plum up front, then spicy/savoury/forest notes accompany the fruit on the back-palate and finish. No doubting the security of the screwcap in protecting freshness. Screwcap. 13.5% alc. Rating 95 Drink 2020 $51 Date Tasted Mar 10 James Halliday
Long regarded as one of Australia's finest producers of Pinot Noir, the new vintage from Curly Flat will only strengthen this claim. The 2010 version is a classic Curly Flat Pinot Noir with an elegant structure, soft silky mouthfeel, dark cherry flavours and the long, lingering finish that we have come to expect from Curly Flat.
