Felton Road Pinot Noir 2010 Bannockburn
N: Very youthful in appearance and bouquet: Sweet cherry and cherry spice, a wild edged mix of light red berries, crystal clear aromas of soil - schist; sweet new oak and suggestions of older barrel use.
P: 'Classic' (Otago attributes) generous and plush fruits flavors. The mineral and tannin flavors and textures are a key attribute especially with the structure - very fine and easy to miss in favor of the youthful fruit intensity.
This is obviously a very young wine and needs some integrations time, it is however a lovely drink now as well and will reward those who choose either option.
A long and adventurous finish. 93 Points
