FELTON ROAD FELTON ROAD - Pinot Noir Block 3 - 2016

FELTON ROAD Pinot Noir Block 3 2016

95 Points

This moves up a gear in terms of complexity and swagger. Always a confident wine in the mix of Felton Road creations, it has reassuring cherry fruit depth on the nose as well as fragrant and ethereal perfumed character with citrus rind and cocoa powder which lifts it impressively. The palate has an array of strawberry, raspberry, boysenberry and red cherry fruits cast in a web of ripe, fine tannins that twists tight into the finish. Iron fist, velvet glove effect.
