2022 Silent Way Pinot Noir 750Ml BottleRegular price $32.00 Sale price $28.00
Matt Harrop's (winemaker at curly Flat) own label made from a mature vineyard at Kilmore that he buys fruit from each year. It's just outside the Macedon GI otherwise it would be $10 dearer! This is quite a rich and firm style of pinot, and it's great value too.
This is the tenth vintage of Silent Way pinot from the Quarry Ridge vineyard just outside the dotted line for the Macedon region and near Kilmore. As James Suckling points out, the only thing that separates this and other pinots of the region twice the price (or more!) is a layer of spicy new oak, which this wine frankly does not require. With rich, intense red fruits/dark cherries, precise tannin, and a forest-floor complexity - pinot purity is on show here.
