Felton Road 'Bannockburn' Pinot Noir 2016

What do these icons mean?

All sophistication and style, this well-crafted drop is full of flavour. Sexy spice aromas of cinnamon and vanilla combine with typical pinot noir dark cherry flavours. Layers of mouth-watering ripe fruits and creaminess are finished off with a liquorice twist. It’s lush, and well-rounded without being too heavy. A great mate for roast lamb.

The Wine Front – How quickly they come around, seems like only yesterday I was tasting the 2013. For Pinot Fanciers, I reckon you either really like Central Otago, or you’re not too fussed. Also acknowledge increasing diversity of style, sub-regionality, older vines and better understanding of site and season with an upward swing in quality within the region. Rich cherry pie, thyme, fennel, spice and meaty complexity. Medium bodied, but plush with juicy cherry, some meaty reductive flavours, fleshy feel, silty tannin and mineral feel, balanced but firm acidity and again, that juicy almost tinned cherry flavour on a pretty long finish. Given a day’s grace and re-taste, the wine pulled more savoury and less flamboyant, auguring well for the future. Good release here.

World Wine – Another potent powerful number this. Bitter chocolate plum, and a galangalness. Sweet kidney meats too. More gentle on the tongue than expected with fine, sandy tannins, mouth-sucking plum skin and a bitter orange finish. Excellent length and builds in the glass.
