Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2015 (Macedon Ranges)

Curly Flat Macedon Pinot Noir 2015 is pale garnet with sparkling clarity.

Aromas of violets, black cherries and wild raspberry swirl as scents of undergrowth and potpourri enhance complexity to form a rich, fragrant and savoury nose.

A luscious energetic palate that is awash with fine tannin that coalesces into a singular scaffold of impressive structure. Kirsch characters intersect with cocoa, black pepper all to be assuaged by swirls of vanillin spice that flourishes to a long lingering finish.

Approachable now but undoubtedly one for the cellar. An easy 10, if not 15 years lay ahead.

Marking our 18th vintage release of Pinot Noir, 2015 was a vintage imbued with near ideal conditions. The growing season was warm, not hot. The thermometer didn’t hit 40 degrees and few days got above 35, only four to be exact. This balanced warmth was delivered without extreme weather events. From there, the culmination of our site, our team and the year allowed us to reap the reward of powerful fruit wrapped around a core of great acidity leading to wines that will age exceptionally well. This is expressed in our 2015 estate Pinot Noir power laced with elegance - the only component missing being age in the cellar. There are great benefits in aging our wines and this release is certainly no exception. Winery Notes

“Transparent ruby. Heady violets on the nose. Fresh ferny fruit. Lots to chew on but the fruit is emphatic enough to handle it. Racy and crunchy but still youthful.”
17+ Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com

“Every year, the Curly Flat Pinot forces one to address two questions. Is this the best they have ever made and are there any better Pinots in the country? To the first, if it is not then it is certainly in the final. To the second, perhaps, but none are better value. Seductive and supple, complex. Forest floor notes, gamey characters, animal skins, old leather. A lovely sappy style, there is some whole bunch character here but it is done so well, it forms an integral part of a delicious and exciting Pinot.”
97 Points - Kim Gargett, Tastingbook

“It’s the sternest, crunchiest, most brooding Curly Flat Pinot Noir I can recall. It’s routinely a wine of heft, and cellar-worthiness, but this release is a rock.
Tannin, acid, fruit and oak all combine to powerful effect. It’s simultaneously slippery smooth, creamy in fact, and surly; it’s like an approaching cold front: beautiful, intense, intimidating. We have spice, alpine herbs, orange rind and stewed black cherries. We have acidity forming a clear stream. We have sets of tannin. This is a monty for the cellar.”

95 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
