Winery : Felton Road
Due to limited availability of the wines in this vintage, we are selling Felton Road 2021 Pinot Noirs only as a MIXED SIX, comprising 3 x Bannockburn, 2 x Calvert and 1 x Block 5.
2021 Felton Road Bannockburn Pinot Noir (value $84) Vineyard notes: 'A classic Felton Road nose of dark blossoms: rose and violet with a compote of dark fruits. The mid-palate is just screaming Felton Road. Black cherries and cream on the nose introduced cherry crumble on the palate with baked spices. Very harmonious for a wine so young, but a brooding undertow reveals the intrinsic power of the wine. Four Bannockburn vineyards seamlessly integrating to provide many layers and textures.'
2021 Felton Road Calvert Pinot Noir (value $104) Vineyard notes: 'Perfumed floral notes abound amongst a background of dark fruits, Indian spice and a savoury earthiness. The vines, now 20 years old, are deeply settled in the silt soils of this remarkable site providing a distinctive and consistent vineyard expression. Florality, subtlety and harmony, with finely chiseled tannins, are the hallmarks of Calvert. This 2021 is as fine as it gets.'
2021 Felton Road Block 5 Pinot Noir (value $140) Vineyard notes: 'In its youthful stage, the nose is bursting with aromas of black cherry, florals and spicy leather notes. Expect this to evolve and develop complexity in the usual Block 5 manner with time in bottle. The 2021 Pinot Noirs delight in their finesse and poise: not heavy or cloying like some other vintages, and as we have seen before, the Block 5 naturally luxuriates in these finer and elegant years. The detail and depth are palpable; the finish is refined and sustained; it’s unmistakably Block 5.'
