100% Pinot Noir from the Cornish Point vineyard in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago.
Unique gravity flow enables fruit (approx 25% whole cluster) to be gently destemmed directly into open-top fermenters without pumping. Traditional fermentation with maceration on skins has extracted good colour and tannin with considerable depth of flavour. Aged for 13 months in French oak barrels from artisan Burgundian coopers. In accordance with Felton Road's non-interventionalist approach to winemaking, this wine was fermented with indigenous yeast and was not fined or filtered.
Brambly forest floor, deep Eastern spice box and dark concentrated cherry aromas. The fruit intensity and plump richness ultimately gives way to a pleasant and soothing rustic charm. An alluring and irresistible mouthfeel with a savoury intensity shining through the finish. Textbook Cornish Point; mouth-coating, silky, sexy and spicy!
