"If Central Otago was the Côte de Nuits, then Bannockburn would likely be Vosne-Romanée and I’m going to hang it right out and say that Felton Road would be the top gun, the DRC." James Suckling (September 2015)

Move over Burgundy, Willamette Valley, Sonoma Coast and Santa Rita Hills! There's a new Pinot player in town, an up-an-coming locale that has become a destination for world-class Pinot Noir! If you love Pinot like we love Pinot, make room in your cellar for the wines from Central Otago, New Zealand. Start with today's Three Pack Feature, the 2015 Felton Road Pinot Noir "Bannockburn"!

Felton Road is situated on warm, north facing slopes of glacial loess soils in Bannockburn, in the heart of Central Otago. The modern gravity fed winery receives 100% estate grown fruit from its three vineyards that are all farmed biodynamically and are fully certified by Demeter.

Felton Road winemaker Blair Walter is an exceptionally talent and is today recognized as among the very best when it comes to extracting the most profound qualities out of Pinot Noir. Along with his team Blair utilizes minimal intervention in his winemaking including such practices as the use of indigenous wild yeast fermentation, along with an adherence to no fining or filtration of the finished wine. These practices allow the unique vineyard characteristics of the properties wines to further express their considerable personality. Each and every Felton Road cuvée is an exquisite expression of place. Since the first vintage in 1997, Felton Road has acquired a formidable worldwide reputation as the opening quote above from James Suckling can attest.

"Reasonably light Pinot Noir but certainly not lacking in intensity or power. Cherry, violet and spice flavors with a savory, herbal edge. A complex wine, with layers of subtle flavors that might at least in part be linked to the bio-diverse soils achieved through biodynamic viticultural practices. Drink 2016 to 2025. (June 2016)

"A wine that really acts like the village wine for Felton Road with a number of vineyards contributing to an overall look and feel of the vintage, and this is full of pleasure. Smells super bright and fragrant with rose-like perfume, mulberries, boysenberries, poached strawberries and cherry compote. A little spice and bracken and some flurries of toasty oak. The palate's silky and creamy, flowing on velvety tannins, while the acidity holds ripe plum and cherry flavors vibrant and tangy. Drink now. Almost drinks itself!" (December 22, 2016)

"Dark and brooding, with black licorice, plum and black cherry flavors that are velvety and sophisticated, accented with toasted cumin and paprika accents. Drink now through 2030" (May 31, 2017)
