A brooding Pinot Noir in the Curly Flat classic style. Not your normal bright red fruit here but darker redcurrant. plum and cedar oak with a touch of salami, cured meats. Redcurrant and plum flavours continue onto the palate which is firm, dry, round and textured. Well balanced acidity to match the chalky Burgundian tannin profile. Long, warm savoury finish. This complex wine is an estate blend of seventeen separate lots representing distinct aspects, clones and soils.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
