Supple wild berry, cherry and plum flavors are both powerful and delicate, with details of Earl Grey tea, white pepper, anise and crushed rock. Expansive and expressive, the finish sails on and on, with satiny tannins that never get in the way. Drink now through 2030.

Hedonistic Pinot nose: layers of floral spice, lovely, quite ripe fruit, something herbal and savoury, too; supple, with dark fruit flavours to the fore. Will reward cellaring. Drink 2015-2022

Felton Road has delivered yet another sappy and fragrant pinot, packed with wild cherries, strawberries and plums. Ultra-fine spices float throughout, and there are plenty of anise, liquorice and fresh herbal smells. The palate is like a soft-centred, fleshy ball of red cherry fruit, yet is really delicate with a finely woven web of tannins, bright acidity and a finish crunchy.
