Initally floral aromatics surround an array of red fruits in a wine that is at once brooding and elegant. Complexing savoury secondary characters of cold cut meats, fresh earth & undergrowth provides contrasting gravity. With a flavour filled palate of medium plus weight, this is great Pinot Noir from the get go. Oak only plays supporting role, providing great texture and mouthfeel, but the fruit is the star here, brimming with energy and juicy acidity. - Winery Note

Winery Notes: "

Curly Flat is owned and operated by Jenifer Kolkka and Phillip Moraghan. Everyone in the Curly Flat vineyard and winery team is focused on producing the best wines possible from their carefully selected and nurtured site. The team at Curly Flat has an interesting, diverse and complementary skills set. While some now have formal viticulture and wine science qualifications, all have practical skills acquired in different backgrounds – Robert the builder, Lisa with a degree in communication studies, Matt a civil engineer,  Ben a quality control officer, Jenifer did accounting, and it goes on.  Interestingly, the average length of service of the vineyard team now exceeds seven years – most unusual, yet very valued.                                                        

Phillip came from a farming background but strayed into the world of accounting and finance before coming back to his roots. He had a long held interest in wine, and developed affection for Pinot Noir while doing post-graduate business studies in Switzerland. This affection grew as he spent increasing amounts of his scarce spare time in Burgundy, as did his determination to return to Australia and grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Fortunately, Jenifer shared that vision.

There are no passive or external financial investors; hence we do not have to compromise on quality to meet financial targets of others. An example of this culture of not compromising quality was our decision to declassify the entire vintage of 2000 Chardonnay because it did not reach our benchmark scores – this was the genesis of our ‘junior’ label, Williams Crossing.

Phillip and Jeni’s mentor in establishing the vineyard and early winemaking experiences was Macedon Ranges pioneer Laurie Williams of Flynn and Williams."
