2019 PINOT NOIR, Felton Road. Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand (Magnum)

Bin:  886

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

Central Otago on the South Island is a wild and rugged area with cool winters and hot summers. In the warm season cool nights slow the ripening process, retaining freshness in the wines. Nevertheless, the style of Pinot for which the area is renowned, is generally deep and generous.

Felton Road, owned by Englishman Nigel Greening, has long been the leader in the region. Blair Walter has been the winemaker since the first vintage, 1997, and his experience really shows. The vineyards are managed bio-dynamically.

Grape variety:

100% Pinot Noir, fermented with 20% whole bunches using only natural yeasts. Matured for 13 months in French oak, with 25% new barrels.

Old Bridge rating:

Ideally you would keep this 10 years, but it’s very hard to resist now!

Press review:

“Attractive aroma with floral and berry notes that repeat on the palate and are joined by ripe stems, dried herb and spicy oak flavours. Quite a firmly-structured pinot with peppery tannins and obvious cellaring potential. Good intensity and a lingering finish. A distinctive wine with a character all of its own.” 96/100. Bob Campbell MW
