Felton Road Block 5 Pinot Noir Central Otago – 2016
Immediately the pedigree is obvious: loaded with dark fruit and dried herbs, with hints of smoked meat over a complex spice background. The palate leads with a silky chocolate like sensation that builds and flows to every corner of the mouth. There is a harmony of different textural components that’s enchanting and end-lessly enticing. It’s all about finesse, detail and honesty: no more and no less.
