11 Felton Road Pinot Noir Bottling Note
This is a 2011 vintage New Zealand pinot noir from the Central Ontago winery of Felton Road. Felton Road was opened by Nigel Greening. Nigel moved to New Zealand to indulge in his love of pinot noir, and this enthusiasm shine through in this pinot noir.
Big red cherry fruits open up a voluptuous nose with a herbal undercurrent. The palate moves away from red fruit and embraces rich plums and damsons with a firm acidity and gentle tannins. The finish lingers with a hint of black pepper.
