Focused, personality, fun, great balance
I find it a little light when we think that we are drinking Central Otago, but Felton Rd is so unique. Never overpowering.
I just wonder if I identify their wines more with the region or with their winemaking🧐
Ps this might tell you how wine is a cerebral enjoyment rather than just material 🤔

This wine has great potential to age gracefully, but it is so extraordinary delicious already that it is hard to put aside when it comes to select a wine

Still holding a bit of garnet, smells of warm wool, carob, and dried cherries. Juicy red fruit, a touch of earth, dried flowers. Excellent acidity. Leather and anise on the finish.

Solid, poached red fruits and rhubarb that all offered a touch of sweetness, whole bunch complexity in there too with a touch of hibiscus and ginger biscuit. Medium plus acid and medium minus tannin.

Warm nose with a slightly overripe quality. Med intensity and complexity. Palate developed a touch over 30 min. Trying to be restrained but did not succeed. Tannins were a touch edgy. #feltonroad #centralotago #pinotnoir #newzeland #ctbucklinwine
