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

Ripe and juicy PN. Very fruit forward and easy to drink.

On the nose, blueberries, blackberries, dark cherries, raspberries, mint and exotic perfumes red florals. On the palate; M+ tannins, blueberries, blackberries, dark cherries, strawberries, cinnamon, clove & nutmeg, amazing perfumed red florals, red & pink roses, loamy soils, perfect mellow acidity and a delicately beautiful finish crafted with great precision. Photos of open top stainless steel fermenters with Pinot Noir grapes and the electronic entrance security gate.

Богатый и сложный в ароматике: красные ягоды, специи, кофе, животный тон, однако аромат быстро уходит. Во вкусе хорошая кислотность, но общее впечатление портит излишняя спиртуозность
