The Curly Flat 2022 Estate Pinot Noir is composed of eleven different sections that highlight the unique characteristics of each aspect, clone, and soil type. The vineyard details were carefully managed to showcase the distinctive qualities of each parcel. Indigenous yeasts were used in all ferments, while each lot received varying degrees of whole bunch, post ferment skin contact, and oak handling tailored to their individual flavors. This results in a complex Pinot Noir with alluring aromas of spices and red fruit, complemented by richer dark fruit flavors and savory nuances. The integration of vineyard-based tannins and subtle oak notes adds a long and mineral-driven finish. After 16 months of ageing, our Estate blend includes 6% whole bunch and 17% new oak, and was bottled without filtration.

Winery & Vintage Info

Curly Flat Pinot Noir represents the wineries passion as winegrowers to faithfully capture the essence of our remarkable site coupled with the unique expression that is derived from each vintage.

The 2022 growing season continues the cool theme of the last two seasons of 2021 & 2020. Although all three were cool, each vintage has expressed differently and 2022 is no exception. This was from the get-go as we endured our coldest spring on record. In comparison, the combined heat accumulation of October and November was over 60% lower than the average. Thankfully, we managed to avoid any serious frosts during this time most part due to higher rainfall and associated cloud cover. The cool trend continued for most of the summer outside of a warmer-than-average January that gave our vines a welcome push along with that month’s slightly above-average rainfall. Rainfall for December and February was well below average, especially in February when no rain fell for the entire month. That said, the effect of a dry February aided the concentration of our fruit in this somewhat cooler year. Autumn too was cooler than average, especially April but by then we ready to pick at optimal ripeness. Overall we are delighted with the expression that is 2022 which stands as a celebration of cool climate viticulture with it’s wonderful fragrance, nuanced depth, supple yet ample texture brought together with chime of fresh mineral acidity.
