Description

A tiny production from Awatere Valley founders Vavasour, Felix's vineyard has improved with each successive release, gaining more elegance and balance every year. This 2016 follows on from the stunning 2015, the clay soils of this, their 'favourite' Awatere site, giving a richness to the palate that complements the stunning aromatics (which are rarely lacking in this part of the country). Fourteen months in French oak is only fitting for such an impressive wine, rounding out the palate and giving it an age-worthy signature you expect in flagship Pinot. Delicate perfumes of summer hay bails, woody herbs, cherry fruit and plums, give way to a long, fleshy and detailed palate that goes on and on.
