Felton Road Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2018 is produced in New Zealand’s Central Otago. The winery was bought by Nigel Greening, a self-described Pinot Noir “addict” from England, in 2000 and has been farmed organically & biodynamically since then.
Dark raspberry, hints of the leaves as well, with a touch of old cedar wood panelling. The palate is viscous and concentrated, displaying cane fruits that deftly integrate with an alluring savouriness. Fine, long tannins with no shortage of chew, but no harshness. This is at a level way above its Bannockburn “village” designation, being a blend of our four primely situated vineyards. A serious wine with considerable definition and poise.
