2011 Curly Flat Pinot Noir

A big night of Pinot (Part 4)

4 May 2016

The challenge was set. The Moric did not measure up, the 2010 Curly Flat was too fruit forward and oaked.

Complexity? The 2011, from a difficult vintage it has aged quickly, what it lacks in fruit it makes up for in structure and complexity.

On the nose it shows dried strawberries, raspberries and cherries. Mushrooms, dried herbs and cooked meats.

The palate is well balanced with gripping tannins. Remarkable weight and mouth feel. Complex and thought provoking.

Well balanced though likely not for the long term cellaring.

Drink now to 2020.
