3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Felton Road is located in Bannockburn, Central Otago in New Zealand – the world’s most southerly wine growing region. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling are produced from the estate’s 80 acres of vineyards, divided between three sites – The Elms Vineyard, Cornish Point Vineyard and Calvert Vineyard. All estate fruit is organic, handpicked and viticulture is Demeter certified biodynamic. Vinification is equally meticulous – the wines flow directly via gravity to barrel in Felton Road’s underground cellars, wild yeasts are used for fermentation, malolactic occurs naturally and fining and filtration are avoided if at all possible. Purity of expression is winemaker Blair Walter’s goal and his experience in Oregon and Burgundy has stood him in good stead. His wines offer richness, density, complexity and texture and are exceptionally clear expressions of varietal and place.

Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2012 Calvert Pinot Noir flaunts a perfumed nose of lavender and rose petals over a core of kirsch, mulberries and dried Provence herbs, plus a whiff of underbrush. Medium-bodied and tightly knit, it has exciting vibrancy in the mouth at this youthful stage with a medium level of grainy tannins and refreshing acid to support, finishing with great persistence. Drink it 2014 to 2020+.
 Wine Spectator 93 points (Apr 9 2014)
Rich and complex, opening with a core of ripe, juicy black cherry and blackberry flavors, revealing layers of lavender, clove, cinnamon, black tea, white pepper and truffle details. Graceful and elegant, delivering a plush texture and a finish that doesn’t quit. Drink now through 2028.—M.W.
