Founded by Phillip Moraghan and Jenifer Kolkka in 1991, Jenifer has been the sole owner of Curly Flat since 2017. The focus has always been on the vineyard, a dedicated team ensuring quality is never compromised. Matt Harrop is now overseeing production.
Powerful nose of fresh lime and preserved lemon, white peach, apricot and tangerine combine with a veritable scaffold of savoury characters; sea spray, struck match, hazelnuts and spiced nougat all mesh together with the fruit making for a complex nose. The palate is generous and complex in both taste and texture. A spearhead of lime citrus wave cuts a refreshing line through a creamy, textured palate stone fruit flesh culminating in length that is both long and luxurious.
Estate-grown, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented, 35% mlf, matured in French oak (20% new) for 14 months on lees. Elegant and perfectly balanced, it is maturing at a reassuringly slow pace, promising more still when fully mature. The flavours are poised between stone fruit and citrus.
