Curly Flat – 20/08/2013

Pinot Gris 2012
Quite intense and concentrated, slightly dusty musky fig guava. Layered texture and weight, but still bright fresh and spritzy, tight fresh fleshy citrus pith, round residual sugar.

Chardonnay 2010
Classic aromatics, rich developed but very elegant and restrained. Quite tight and lean on the palate, good acidity, minimal malo character, carries it well, excellent example.

Chardonnay 2011
A little fatter and fuller on the nose, more leesy, a little on the pineapple peach style. A little broader and creamier but style fine and long, a little closed for now.

Pinot Noir 2008
Tight lean slightly stalky, dark berries, precise fine focused. Fresh bright but tight lean and focused, some black olives.

Pinot Noir 2009
Slightly darker in colour. More brooding and open, but quite focused pomegranate, a little on the savoury side. Rich full sweeter tannins, generous chewy savoury tannins too, broader on the palate, intense and extracted but long too.

Pinot Noir 2010
Quite closed, very tight precise, small bunch red berry. Very delicate but intense fruit profile, precise crisp acids.  Wine of the tasting, exceptionally well handled and will hold together for a long time.
