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.

Cornish Point tends to be a little bit softer in texture and weight, with lower acidity from the site in general. Around 20 to 30% whole bunch, crushed to tank, left to sit and ferment wild. I oscillate on fully enjoying Cornish Point over the Block wines, but this release had me from a wink across the room. Fine truffle note over black cherries. Smells like fine chocolate fondant, touch of Xmas cake spice, whiff of mahogany wood, then something fresh, frisky, gently herbal and floral. Slides across the palate with ease and a seamless, smooth feel. Great energy in the wine. Vibrant, harmonious, great balanced but distintcly also a relaxed, open weave feel that makes the wine so good. Really delicious. Really good. Alcohol : 14%; Price : $86; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2015 - 2025; Rated : 95 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
