Felton Road Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

The Bannockburn winery's 'standard' Pinot Noir is a distinguished wine, blended from its four sites in the district. Matured in French oak casks (27 per cent new in 2019), it is fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled without fining or filtering. Barrel-aged for 13 months, the 2019 vintage (5*) is fragrant, deeply coloured and mouthfilling, with concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with nutty oak, supple tannins, and a finely poised, very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+.
