Beginning with meticulous site selection and vineyard design started in 1991, Felton Road's story is one of refusal to compromise. A commitment to hands off winemaking: gravity flow, wild yeasts, wild malo, an avoidance of fining and filtration all help preserve the wine's expression of its terroir. This wine is from Cornish Point vineyard where the close proximity to water creates a unique mesoclimate.
The aromas are bursting with exuberant ripe plum and black cherry backed up with wafts of fine chocolates and a whole cupboard of complex spices. The mouthfeel is velvety soft and voluptuous, with fleshy fruit over dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. A plush, harmonious and expressive wine. Charming and textbook Cornish Point.
