Curly Flat

Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir 2015

Curly Flat never fails to bring joy to my life. I recall tasting this vintage pre-release at the end of a long lunch on a brutally Victorian winter’s day just before Jeni kindly drove my partner and I to the airport (a story unto itself). I recall the striking vitality of the wine, a contrast to the perfumed ‘14 and more delicate, fine-boned ‘13. It’s no shy wallflower, for sure, with proper acid and structure and weight. That whole-bunch character comes through beautifully, without even a hint of unripe vegetal notes. This one coerces rather than seduces, but it’s nonetheless convincing. Happy to have another bottle or two stashed away, as there’s much more to come from this one. — 11 days ago

Block 5 Pinot Noir 2010

As per previous notes in 2019 and 2020. The pale colour belies the palate intensity. Red fruits, a confectionery note, rose petals. A good but not a great Block 5. Have the last one in a year or two. — 5 months ago

Quartz Macedon Ranges Chardonnay 2011

Pale Lemon in colour. Barrel ferment characters. Oak is there on the medium minus intensity palate but perfectly integrated. From the poor 2011 vintage everywhere in Australia except the Hunter Valley and Western Australia. The wine is restrained, fine and delicate - good citrus notes on the light to medium weight palate with medium citric acid. A perfect example of why I think Chardonnay is better with oak treatment rather than unoaked. It is required and completes the picture as long as it doesn’t dominate. This is a great effort considering the vintage. — 3 months ago
