Curly Flat, located in the Macedon Ranges, is a small, privately owned, estate-based vineyard and winery.
Curly Flat was developed from 1989 by Phillip Moraghan and Jenifer Kolkka after the greenfield site had been identified as ideal for growing the early ripening varieties of pinot noir and chardonnay. In 2017, Jenifer became the sole owner of Curly Flat. Under her leadership, the winery’s reputation for high-quality winemaking continues. Jenifer and her team, led by winemaker Matt Harrop, are fully committed to producing the best possible wines from the carefully nurtured site.
Volcanic Basalt soils, P58, I1V01, I1V03 & I1V05 clones are used from vines aged 19 to 23 years.
Whole bunch pressed, aged in French oak barrels for 18 months in 100% French oak (37% new)
A complex nose of bakers’ spice and white florals, struck match and sea spray salinity. Notes of lemon curd, preserved lime and fresh fig form a nose that is rich yet delicate.
Powerfully elegant citrus driven palate, with grapefruit leading the charge. Seamless structure and mineral acidity provide elegant undercarriage and length to the immediately satisfying front and mid palate.
Baked Halibut with new potatoes and chives.
Drinking very well now, rewards await cellaring over the next five to ten years.
