Felton Road Calvert Pinot Noir 2014
Felton Road wines is located in Bannockburn, Central Otago in New Zealand, the most southerly wine growing region in the World. Here, vineyards are nestled into small macroclimates totally surrounded by high mountains, many of which are snowcapped all year round. Though the location is on the edge of sustainable viticulture these macroclimates consistently combine hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns. The latitude of 45 degrees south is similar to the Willamette Valley in Oregon and some of the finest wine regions of France. "Both of Felton Road's Pinot Noirs are breakthrough efforts in New Zealand, and compete with the finest wines being made in California, Oregon and Burgundy's Cote D'Or.

The wine leads with the characteristic Calvert restrained nose that is pure and tight. The palate is similarly focussed with great detail and a tight core of vivid red fruits. It delivers a sort of essence of pinosity that leaves no doubt about the wine’s origin. There is a crunch to the texture of the wine as the structure lifts its head, but the tannins are never harsh, simply stating that they are there for the long haul. The wine finishes with the accuracy and finesse that is becoming the hallmark of Calvert.
