The only thing that beats getting fruit in the shed is getting the wine in the bottle!
We just completed our mid-year bottling which this year consisted of five wines, the 2010 Williams Crossing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and then three wines from the 2011 vintage our Curly Flat Pinot Grigio, White Pinot & Rose.
Check out the Curly Flat Winery section of the blog for a video of the Williams Crossing 2010 Pinot Noir being bottled!
When bottling we use Premium Estate Bottlers, a mobile bottling production line ingeniously housed within the length of a semi-trailer. As they come to us, our wine never leaves the premises, meaning we eliminate any risk in comprising the integrity of our wine. Also outside of the two engineers maintaining the equipment, the line is manned by our own experienced staff which of whom have the highest of standards.
All the wines from this bottling bar the 2010 Williams Crossing Pinot Noir, will be released later in the year. But they will probably be available prior to the official launch exclusively at our Cellar Door. Check the Cellar Door page on this site to see the wines that are currently on for tasting. So either way, be sure to look out for the release of these summer wines.
Our next bottling will be the 2010 Curly Flat Chardonnay this October 🙂

Looking forward to 2010 vintages of William Crossing Chardonay and Pinot Noir. Just had a 2006 William Crossing Pinot Noir for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. On xmas day we greatly enjoyed a Curly Flat Pinot 2004. So about whent will 2010 vintages be ready for sale do you think? Thanks Jenny.
Thanks for the post Jenny! Very happy to see you kept some 2006 WX Pinot & 2004 CF Pinot in the cellar, both great vintages that are reflective of their respective growing years. Even happier that they didn’t disappoint! In regards to the 2010 vintages, both Williams Crossing Pinot & Chardonnay are available now and are drinking well. As for the respective Curly Flat releases, the Chardonnay will be roughly mid this year and the Pinot Noir will Feb-March next year. But the 2009 CF Pinot will be released in the next 1-2 weeks. Grab some if you can as it’s superb but unfortunately scarce due to a small crop in 2009, so it won’t last. Check out the review currently on the Blog. Thanks again for the feedback Jenny, happy drinking!
