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.
A complex nose with many layers. Floral aromatics of violets & lavender merge with red fruits ranging from wild strawberry to Satsuma plum. The entrancing spectrum then runs into more savoury territory of game meats and earthen richness, framed by alluring oak spice.
This is the main release from all parts of the vineyard. MV6, 115 and 114 clones, 20% whole bunch, 28 days on skins, matured for 16 months in oak (20% new). Fine, elegant and fragrant cherry and pomegranate fruit. Overall balance and length are very good. QED.

Dried rose perfume in with some fresh mint, deep raspberry flavour, a little almond and vanilla, plus some spice. It’s ripe, but not overly so, with cool acidity, a dusting of graphite tannin, and a long biscuity finish. It’s generous in style, but keeps itself trim. I’m particularly tickled by the quality of tannin here. Excellent. Tasted: March 2020; Alcohol: 13.5%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2028+; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
