Curly Flat ‘The Curly’ Pinot Noir 2015, Macedon Ranges, AUD $66
This wine is like one of those fabulously engaging, flamboyant people that you meet, who are open and charming, and in an instant, you adore them.
The aromatics and wafting and heady and the palate is soft, open and generous. However, underneath there are enough nuances of herbs and spice to keep things interesting. Pour a small amount into a large glass and enjoy over a number of days. Made from the oldest vines in the vineyard, MV6 clone. Whole bunch fermentation and new French oak maturation. (Screwcap)
