Curly Flat Williams Crossing Pinot Noir

The 2007 Williams Crossing Pinot Noir received very positive reviews and I can only add another one to this. It is the second label of Curly Flat, and the quality is astonishing for it. It would beat many Pinots twice the price.

The flavours are a cascade of forest berries, including wild strawberry and blueberry, as well as cherries. The wine has medium weight and moves through to more savoury flavours on the back palate. The texture is very balanced and refined, although the mouthfeel is slightly linear. A silky and dry finish makes this an excellent wine to accompany a variety of foods (it was chicken for me).
The wine drinks very well now, I would not cellar it longer term.
