Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Ruby with aromas of red fruits, floral and sweet spicy earthy oak. On the palate flavors of raspberry, strawberry and currants with lavender and vanilla notes. Medium tannins with racy acidity, great mouthfeel on a medium finish. Drink now, it’s great! — 2 months ago

Felton Road

Block 5 Pinot Noir 2015

Dark cherry and coriander in this nose.

Provocative blackberry bramble, garden vegetable stalks, dried berry, tinges of menthol.
Such an amazing winery, they command a hefty price here, yet quite worth it in winemaking skill and fruit farming.
7 years and still going strong.
Happy weekend!
