Tasting Notes

    A little reticent on the nose but far more welcoming in the mouth, delivering a silken caress before tightening up again on the finish; the combination of abundant stone-licking tannins and precise acidity creates a taut finish at this early stage in the proceedings. There is plenty of fruit intensity here, offering sweet blackberry and raspberry fruit, a lick of oak-derived cedar and tobacco. A balanced, elegant and fragrant style that will become increasingly refined with time in bottle. (Technical details: 23% whole cluster, 13 months in 30% new French oak barrels. Wild ferment, no fining, no filtering.) Drink 2021-2028.

    Healthy garnet with quite a pale rim. Notably richer nose than the Bannockburn blend. Very sweet palate entry and then it freshens up delightfully. Almost impossible to spit this. It's drinking beautifully already. This may be the bargain of the Felton Road 2019 Pinots. Quite long and layered. Fruit – raspberry? – dominates this wine which may not last forever but is almost irresistible already. Lovely fresh finish with a suggestion of ferns. Drink 2021-2028.

Producer

Felton Road

Felton Road needs little introduction for lovers of New Zealand Pinot Noir. They are firmly established as one of the top producers of fine wine in the Central Otago region of New Zealand’s South Island. In addition to their renowned Pinot Noirs they also produce a couple of cuvees of Chardonnay, a Riesling and a Vin Gris.

Region

Central Otago

For many years New Zealand growers did not know which grape variety could grow in Central Otago. Situated in the very south of the South Island it was always thought that only white grape varieties could be planted. Nowadays however there is no turning back as Pinot Noir rules the roost. There are many reasons why pinot has had so much success in the region, including the dry, sunny climate and the well-draining schist soils. Pinot Noir from Central Otago is usually quite powerful with lots of vibrant fruit and relatively high alcohol.
