This is a pup of a Pinot Noir, full of youthful vigor. In addition to its floral and cherry-infused nose, there is a bouquet garni of woody herbs, which could be partly explained by a 25% whole bunch component, as well as in-bunch variation, which was a signature of this vintage at Felton Road, according to winemaker Blair Walter. While silken and satisfying, there is an innate energy and this youthful expression has a brace of gravelly tannins that build toward the end. The sinewy, fragrant and fresh finish provides line and length. Far too young to be approaching. Give it a minimum of 2 years to get into its groove. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

Beguiling pinot noir with an intense and seductive aroma suggesting red rose, violet and ripe black cherry. Mixed spices are more evident on the palate, which reveals fine, silken tannins and a very lengthy finish. An utterly charming wine that is delicious now but may become even more interesting in time.
