Wiliams Crossing by Curly Flat Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir 2016

Williams Crossing is Curly Flat’s entry level pinot noir offering.  From the 2016 vintage, it’s a lot more restrained than its (2015 vintage) sibling tasted next to it and reviewed here.  The latter is more obviously the star of the show.  Nonetheless, it presents with elegant rhubarb and spice characters that calls to mind a Bourgogne rouge in styling.  This wine will provide enjoyable current drinking that, in some ways, gives a quite insightful glimpse of this cool region.  Rating: Good. Abv: 14.1%. Price: $29. Source: Sample.
