Happy new year to all, thanks for reading our blog and happy drinking for 2012!
This coming February will see the release of our 2009 Curly Flat Pinot Noir and we’re happy to say that this, the last release of the 2009 vintage, is one of our finest to date. Thankfully it’s not just us saying that! Below is an excerpt from Winewise Magazine, a publication established in 1985 and ever since has been driven by a scrupulous array of wine experts led by Lester Jesberg, the magazines editor. This year saw the judges ‘pour’ over 2000 wines from across Australia and abroad in a blind tasting where wines are presented in glass and nothing is known of them outside of variety, which results in telling it like it is.
2009 Curly Flat Pinot Noir Winewise Review Verdict: Outstanding
The nose shows rich raspberry fruit complemented by a hint of stems that add a touch of complexity. The palate has power but also finesse, finishing long, and balanced by firm, fine tannins. This pinot was made with a masterly touch.
Also all Australian wines that obtained the rating of ‘outstanding’ (their highest rating) went onto to an even more stringent tasting to find their ‘best of the best’ for 2011. From there only nine wines made that ultimate list and we’re happy to say that our 2009 Pinot Noir is on it!
