Curly Flat White Pinot Macedon Ranges 2018

Described as a “white pinot”, I had assumed the wine inside would be a pinot blanc.  In fact, putting to one side the clonal aspect*, it is a pinot noir that has spent a short time on skins, in a rosé style, and a good one at that.  In the glass, the wine is a pale salmon in colour, with aromas of strawberries.  The palate is dry with a fullish body, fresh acidity and a stoney, mineral substructure and gentle, savoury strawberry fruit.  Good length on the finish confirms this as a good wine, that is ready to drink now.  Rating: Good. Abv: 13.1%. Price: $26. Website: www.curlyflat.com. Source: Sample.

* Pinot blanc is a mutation of pinot gris, itself a mutation of pinot noir.
