This is a very good pinot noir from Curly Flat in the Macedon Ranges north west of Melbourne. In the glass, it is immediately appealing, with cherry, earth and rhubarb aromas. The palate is balanced with cherry and herb undertones and long length on the finish. The 100% whole bunch fermentation and new oak are not prominent and well judged in context. This wine can be approached now, but should improve with a few years in the cellar. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14.2%. Price: $52. Source: Sample.
