Winery : Felton Road
MIXED PACK SOLD OUT, SORRY!
New release 2018 Bannockburn, Cornish Point and Block 3 Pinot Noirs from the masters, Felton Road. Because of extremely limited volumes, Block 3 is only available in the mixed pack.
2018 Felton Road Bannockburn Pinot Noir: Vineyard notes 'Characteristic floral, cherry and spice aromas abound from the glass on first approach. The fruit from our four vineyards (Elms, MacMuir, Calvert and Cornish Point) delivers appealing diversity of aroma and flavour, along with multiple layers and textures. The deeply textural mouthfeel is silken and already charmingly approachable: partly due to the warm 2018 season, but also highly typical of the Felton Road house style.'
2018 Felton Road Cornish Point Pinot Noir: Vineyard notes 'Lifted aromas of violet and rose integrate seamlessly with black cherry and complexing earthen and dried herb notes. The classic Cornish Point expansiveness and deep fruit provides a solid core through the mid-palate. Restraint and transparency with the winemaking allows the site to clearly express its unique personality from this distinctive lakeside site. Velvet like tannins coat the mouth for a rich and thoroughly engaging finish.'
2018 Felton Road Block 3 Pinot Noir (value $135 - only available in the mixed six pack) Vineyard notes 'The wine leads with a nose filled with intrigue: the diversity, complexity and pleasure that is unmistakably Block 3. Its exotic dark fruit notes with a touch of herbal spice are the consistent markers. The exceptional north facing slope with its heavy textured soils and older vines delivers the typical keynotes to the palate: crushed herbs, raspberry and dark chocolate. Concentration does not come at the expense of transparency; power is there, but always discrete and never fighting Pinosity. Purity of deep fruit and chocolate like tannins abound through the finish of this classic iteration of Block 3.'
