Felton Road ‘Bannockburn’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Feb-2016
Ruby-red colour with garnet hues. The nose is soft and full with savoury dark-red berry fruits, some dried thyme herb and gentle whole bunch stalk elements and nutty oak nuances. A touch of balsamic complexity shows. Full, deep and dense, this has weight and mouthfilling presence. Dark-red fruits prevail with herb and stalk interest. The mouthfeel is supple, but reveals a firm core with fresh, lacy acidity. This has a long finish with undergrowth nuances to the fruit. There is plenty of wine here. A blend of 10 clones and 20 parcels, 50% from ‘Cornish Point, 35% from ‘Elms’ and 15%, vines planted between 1992 and 2002. 11 months in barrel. 14.0% alc. 18.5+/20 Feb 2016 RRP $64.95
