Felton Road Block 5 Pinot Noir Central Otago – 2018
Block 5 is a small plot of Felton Road’s finest and oldest Pinot Noir vines – their “Grand Cru” if this were Burgundy.
“The 2018 Block 5 Pinot Noir shows its typical dark earthiness and sous-bois notes, black cherry fruit and hints of mocha. It’s medium-bodied and plump in the mouth, with plenty of flesh, supple tannins and a long, softly dusty finish tinged with clove, cinnamon and cocoa. It should drink well for at least a decade.” 93pts The Wine Advocate
