2020 Felton Road Bannockburn Pinot Noir (value $79) Vineyard notes 'Bramble, autumnal forest after rain and bright berry fruits lead the nose. Sweet fruit on the entry coats the mouth; immediately expansive and alluring. Incredibly balanced and harmonious with the fruit depth defining the immediate pleasure, but without the wine falling victim to being ‘fruit driven’. Silk laden tannins complete the mouthfeel and demonstrate an apparent boundless capacity to develop nuance and complexity. The harmony undoubtedly comes from the calibre of our four primely situated and respectfully farmed Bannockburn vineyards.'
2020 Felton Road Calvert Pinot Noir (value $99) Vineyard notes 'Immediately bursting with characteristic Calvert florals that are supported by dark cherry, plum and allspice. Violets flow endlessly on a silk laden mid-palate that intensifies and firms in the normal Calvert manner. Refinement; precision; florality; deeply reflective: descriptors that commonly define this great site are respectfully amplified in this cooler and slower ripening vintage.'
2020 Felton Road Block 5 Pinot Noir (value $135) Vineyard notes 'A diverse and complex nose dominated by polished leather and dark rose. The power on the palate is seamlessly integrated with the refined fruit and transparent winemaking. The absence of intervention is pleasingly obvious as it’s the noble site that trumps all else for a focussed and elegant mouthfeel. The finish is peppered with powdery tannins defining the structure. Sure to be one of the greats.'
