Felton Road Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2016 Central Otago, New ZealandThe blend for this is a combination of Felton Road's three estate vineyards, each plot contributing to the complexity of the wine and adding its own character. An excellent Central Otago Pinot Noir.
The immediate potpourri of flowers on the nose is gracefully entwined with subtle minerality. The palate begins precise and playful, showing sandalwood and fine spice notes. A surprising breadth that the tight focus doesn't immediately reveal. Balanced and complete: possessing lovely charm, harmony and a persistent finale. Irresistible in its youth but further complexities will no doubt emerge.
