Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2006

OMG this wine has me captivated.  First up, I've always taken the piss out of the "funky forest" descriptor - yet I find it here in bags. I'd always thought would be rather an off-putting aroma, on the contrary. I cannot get enough of it.  

In the mouth it has some back palate kick, the finish is quite long, staying with you for some time. It's lingering gift is a slight smokiness with a bit of sour dark cherry.  I'm entranced by it. Sadly I know that it will finish and all I'll be left with is this note - and an urge to buy more.

  1. This is my favourite Australian Pinot Noir at this price point to date. Alas, it is all but sold out at most good Melbourne retailers :-(

    What captivated me was the quintessential Pinot Noir nose surprisingly (it was my first Curly Flat experience) back up by a meaty, irony core. So it was bold, and yes, oh so beautiful!
