FELTON ROAD FELTON ROAD - Pinot Noir Block 5 - 2018

FELTON ROAD Pinot Noir Block 5 2018

See the wine detail page

(97-98) POINTS

This is a showy edition of Block 5 with so much on offer aromatically, from fine florals in the rose spectrum, rose hips, plenty of spice, citrus peel and sweet red cherries in abundance. The palate has such elegant, long and firm tannin with intensity and depth and it does have the compactness that defines this parcel. There’s such succulent resolve at the finish. This 2018 has bold fleshiness that really is stunning already. There’s more immediate pleasure than you’d expect from a young Block 5. From biodynamically grown grapes.
