2019 Felton Road Bannockburn Pinot Noir: Vineyard notes: 'Dark raspberry, hints of the leaves as well, with a touch of old cedar wood panelling. The palate is viscous and concentrated, displaying cane fruits that deftly integrate with an alluring savouriness. Fine, long tannins with no shortage of chew, but no harshness. This is at a level way above its Bannockburn “village” designation, being a blend of our four primely situated vineyards. A serious wine with considerable definition and poise.'
2019 Felton Road Cornish Pt Pinot Noir: Vineyard notes: 'As we have come to expect, Cornish Point has a slightly reserved nose as a young wine, with hints of dark fruit, raspberry, roses and crushed herbs. The palate is dense, a core of dark raspberry, then dark petals (rose and violets), and a pleasant waft of char. Serious texture and harmony, opulent yet refined. This is a brooding and powerful rendition from an outstanding vintage.'
2019 Felton Road Block 3 Pinot Noir: ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE MIXED PACK Vineyard notes:'An inviting and intriguing nose: florals compete with rich fruit, a hint of Arabic spices, then a whiff of smoke. The palate is typically diverse and exotic: cherry, savoury, hallmark dried herbs, and a burst of dark red flowers with a finish that just won’t end. The tannins are finely detailed, layered and gradually tighten to show authority over the rich core. There is both serious density and complexity that will amply reward patience. Text book Block 3 that is potentially one of the greatest… yet.'
