Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2012
BOUQUET A complex nose with many layers. Floral aromatics of violets & lavender merge with red fruits ranging from wild strawberry to Satsuma plum. The entrancing spectrum then runs into more savoury territory of game meats and earthen richness, framed by alluring oak spice.
PALATE Persistent cherry fruit diffuses into a red fruited glow that is elegantly framed by tones of autumnal undergrowth and dark chocolate. With an ambient, yet voluminous mouthfeel, firm velvety tannins coordinate with good acidity, providing high definition to the overall complexity.
CELLARING SUGGESTIONS At once dense, yet delicate, lithe, but luxurious. While youthful now, this wine is imbued with a great frame for bottle age suggestive that it will be a joy at every stage over the next 12+ years. In comparison to past vintages, it has the punch of our 2006 but with the sophistication reminiscent of the 2010.
