Ripe plum and an earthy savouriness are complimented with mocha and rose petal. The immediately inviting and generous mouthfeel is in the usual extroverted Cornish Point manner. However, every component is in superb balance with not a step out of place: a sign of things to come as vine age starts to dominate in this vineyard. Chocolate nut tannins flow across the palate building presence and scale. Like a favourite soft and comfortable sofa: easy to melt in to!
Producer Notes, Felton Road
Intriguing smell. Spice, fennel, coffee beans, plum. Bright, quite sappy and dried herb flavoured, almost into black olive, savoury style, with bony tannin and good length. Structural thing.
