Felton Road Block 3 Central Otago Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Grown at Bannockburn, on a north-facing slope 270 meter above sea level, this is a majestic Central Otago wine, among the finest Pinot Noirs in the country. The mature vines are cultivated just in front of the winery, in a section of the vineyard where the clay content is relatively high, giving 'dried herbs and ripe fruit characters'. The wine is matured for 11 to 14 months in Burgundy oak barrels (30 per cent new in 2010), and bottled without fining of filtration. The 2010 vintage is a very 'complete' wine, dense and youthful in colour, with notably rich cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours. A powerful, finely textured red, already delicious, it's benchmark stuff and a prime candidate for cellaring.
