Curly Flat’s “white pinot” is a very high quality, rosé style expression of pinot noir. A decidely pink hue in colour, evidencing time on skins, the wine has an attractive aroma of strawberries and white peaches. The palate is dry, medium bodied and has fresh racy acidity. Ready to drink now, this is an enjoyable wine that straddles the intersection between rosé and red wine and has more substance and interest than most rosés. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 12.7%. Price: $26. Website: https://www.curlyflat.com/. Source: Sample. Reviewed: December 2019.
