2016 Felton Road Cornish Pt Pinot Noir: Vineyard notes - 'A clear, deep red hue. The wine leads with attractive florals that are exotically perfumed with distinct old-fashioned rose and violets. An uncrowded palate showing opulent, rich deep fruits but balanced rather than the usual Cornish Point avalanche. Lovely mocha, velvety and seductive tannins that lusciously coat the palate. Very textural and complete with outstanding length.'
2016 Felton Road Block 3 Pinot Noir: ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE MIXED PACK
Block 3 is taken from The Elms vineyard where a deep tranche of glacial soil is interspersed with calcareous seams.
Vineyard notes: 'A deep, meaty nose of dark fruit, complexing hints of humus and dark rose. The palate is surprisingly more opulent than the colour might suggest. A rich entry of wild bramble that leads to an enticing chalkiness. Riding along the bottom of the palate is a seam of impressive richness: chocolate; mocha; dense with a chewy, herbal complexity. Sophisticated, sensual and unmistakably Block 3.'
