Felton Road, Block 5, Bannockburn, Pinot Noir, Central Otago - 2018

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

A brooding nose led by hints of blackberry, potpourri and polished leather notes. Radiant energy initiates a palate that’s finely focused and dances across the tongue. Its precision and completeness combine complex components in perfect harmony: not a step out of line and perfectly formed. The finish seems to never end while you contemplate this as one of the great Block 5’s. Patience with time in barrel has paid dividends in this extraordinary rendition.

"This is a showy edition of Block 5 with so much on offer aromatically, from fine florals in the rose spectrum, rose hips, plenty of spice, citrus peel and sweet red cherries in abundance. The palate has such elegant, long and firm tannin with intensity and depth and it does have the compactness that defines this parcel. There’s such succulent resolve at the finish. This 2018 has bold fleshiness that really is stunning already. There’s more immediate pleasure than you’d expect from a young Block 5. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold." (10/2019)
