Wine of the Week AU

Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2019, Macedon Ranges, AUD $53

The 2018 Curly Flat pinots were stunning, the 2019s equally impressive. There are two limited-production single-block wines; this is the ‘Estate’ blend.

It sports a deepish colour with a tint of purple and a richly spicy, ‘forest floor’ and dark cherry bouquet, subtly tinged with toasty oak. The wine is full-bodied and strongly built, with voluminous flavour and serious tannin structure. An impressive pinot of weight, flesh and density. (Screwcap)
