Felton Road, Calvert, Bannockburn, Pinot Noir, Central Otago - 2018

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

A floral and delightfully perfumed nose immediately engages and enthrals. Sweet fruit opens the palate exposing layers of dark cherry, spice and complex earthy notes. The sense of immediacy and open appeal is quickly tempered by its structural and mineral tannins: a mouthfeel characteristic of Calvert’s deep and heavy silt soils. They contribute a stature and seriousness to the proposition: contemplative and sincere.

"If you get the opportunity to visit the Calvert vineyard - and I hope you do - then the air and soil scents you can’t help but notice are the first two aromas of this wine - sweet air and a clay-sand- gravel soil smell. The rest of the bouquet is all pinosity and complexity with with scents of rose, ripe cranberry and sweet red cherry, there’s also a savoury dried herb note adding further complexity and depth. On the palate - youthful, savoury, fruity and complex with a core of mineral and dried herb contrasted by ripe red fruit flavours. Tannins are fine and chalky, abundant and alongside the medium+ acidity - mouthwatering and just salty. The palate is long, focused and detailed. Great use of oak with just enough to notice adding flavour, texture and depth. Well made with best drinking from 2022 through 2032+."
