Felton Road Block 3 Pinot Noir 2019Felton Road
ORIGIN: CENTRAL OTAGO, NEW ZEALAND
UNFINED, UNFILTERED, BIODYNAMIC
The wine leads with a nose filled with intrigue: the diversity, complexity and pleasure that is unmistakably Block 3. Its exotic dark fruit notes with a touch of herbal spice are the consistent markers. The exceptional north facing slope with its heavy textured soils and older vines delivers the typical keynotes to the palate: crushed herbs, raspberry and dark chocolate. Concentration does not come at the expense of transparency; power is there, but always discrete and never fighting Pinosity. Purity of deep fruit and chocolate like tannins abound through the finish of this classic iteration of Block 3.
