Why not take a Pinot Noir journey, across Chile, Burgundy and finally to Central Otago, New Zealand. Discover the essence of what this fascinating grape has to offer, with differing terroirs and winemaking techniques. Three fantastic and individual wines at various stepped price points.
Delighted to be adding Pinot Noir to this top Chilean’s entry level ‘Adobe’ range, that are always so popular. Typically light in colour with smooth cherry fruit, sweet vanilla and supple tannins to balance. A great value Pinot.
Entry level red Burgundy from a talented and experienced producer. Very attractive and expressive, with cherry and plum aromas and a well balanced 'berries and cream' lushness to the palate. Fruit forward there is a lot here to enjoy.
After years of tasting (and drinking!) these wines, we're delighted to finally get a small allocation - available online only. Felton Road have been setting the standard for New Zealand Pinot Noir since the 1990s. They farms four properties totaling 32 ha in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago. This wine is a blend from our four vineyards; Cornish Point, Calvert, MacMuir and The Elms. Shoot thinning, shoot positioning, leaf plucking, bunch thinning and harvest are all carried out by hand to ensure optimum quality fruit. Cover crops are planted between rows to assist in vine balance and to improve soil health and general biodiversity.
The immediate potpourri of flowers on the nose is gracefully entwined with subtle minerality. The palate begins precise and playful, showing sandalwood and fine spice notes. A surprising breadth that the tight focus doesn't immediately reveal. Balanced and complete: possessing lovely charm, harmony and a persistent finale. Irresistible in its youth but further complexities will no doubt emerge.
