Felton Road Block 3 Pinot Noir 2021 1.5 L
Origin: Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Producer's notes: The 25th bottling of Block 3 engenders memories of the very first and its demanding of a single vineyard bottling: distinct wild thyme and spice introducing its more diverse and complex nose. It’s incredibly transparent on the palate, drawing you in to the chocolate that lies beneath the surface. The tannins are surprisingly svelte and perfectly formed. All the power is focused on the back of the palate, as it should be. By the time you’ve got there, you know you are in the presence of a serious wine.
