Reasonably light Pinot Noir but certainly not lacking in intensity or power. Cherry, violet and spice flavours with a savoury, herbal edge. A complex wine, with layers of subtle flavours that might at least in part be linked to the bio-diverse soils achieved through biodynamic viticultural practices. Drink 2016 to 2025.
A wine that really acts like the village wine for Felton Road with a number of vineyards contributing to an overall look and feel of the vintage, and this is full of pleasure. Smells super bright and fragrant with rose-like perfume, mulberries, boysenberries, poached strawberries and cherry compote. A little spice and bracken and some flurries of toasty oak. The palate's silky and creamy, flowing on velvety tannins, while the acidity holds ripe plum and cherry flavors vibrant and tangy. Drink now. Almost drinks itself!
Dark and brooding, with black licorice, plum and black cherry flavors that are velvety and sophisticated, accented with toasted cumin and paprika accents. Drink now through 2030
