96 Points - Bob Campbell!
"Felton Road's story is one of refusal to compromise. A strict 100% estate policy with fully organic and biodynamic viticulture (Demeter certified) ensures that our fruit arrives at the winery as pure as it can be, while our entire estate comes as close to true sustainability as is possible. A commitment to hands off winemaking: gravity flow, wild yeasts, wild malolactic, 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.
Lifted aromas of violet and rose integrate seamlessly with black cherry and complexing earthen and dried herb notes. The classic Cornish Point expansiveness and deep fruit provides a solid core through the mid-palate. Restraint and transparency with the winemaking allows the site to clearly express its unique personality from this distinctive lakeside site. Velvet like tannins coat the mouth for a rich and thoroughly engaging finish."

"A long, linear wine with a seductively silken texture. Almost too delicious - it leaves me wondering how it could possibly improve with bottle age."
