Pungent attractive dark fruits led by redcurrants, plums, cherries interwoven with spice and a touch of cured meats and cedar oak. Typical Curly Flat firmness on the palate. Savoury style of Pinot displaying more darker fruits and cedar with well-balanced acidity and tannins that provide a nice sustained textural flavour and length. Will mature well for a decade.
Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2020, Macedon Ranges, Vic
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.
