Tasting Note:

Seamless, creamy and fluid, this is forever a moreish charming Felton Road cuvee that is enjoyable from the off. However, without sacrificing any of its joy, elegance or brightness, it feels as there is more intensity and depth here than usual. Fine boned by with plenty of allure and sensuality, offering flavours of red berries, cherry and loganberry with a hint of sapidity giving focus to the elegant, clean finish. A blend of barrels from the Calvert, Cornish Point and the Elms vineyards (the latter is where the Block cuvees come from.) Fermented with 25% whole bunches and aged for 13 months in a quarter new burgundy barrels.
