Felton Road Calvert Pinot Noir (2019)

Grown in the Calvert Vineyard at Bannockburn – 1 kilometre east of the winery – matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new in 2019), and bottled unfined and unfiltered, the 2019 vintage (5*) is already delicious. Deep ruby, it is highly fragrant, mouthfilling and supple, with very generous, well-ripened cherry, plum and spice flavours, vibrant, dense and savoury. Powerful, and sure to be long-lived, it should be at its best 2023+.
