This has a lovely nose that balances burnished cherry and dried raspberry fruit against delicate notes of stem, moss, dried floral tones and a whisper of cinnamony spice. Rich and soft in the mouth, bordering on lush but again with great balance. The fruit is a touch dark, veering off towards black cherry, but the soil, mineral and woodsy tones keep this fresh and offer good complexity. The finish is a touch short but hardly detracts from the wine. 90pts

A nose of plum, dark cherry and herbs with oriental spice. Ripeness drives the palate, no jamminess but a rich, dark compote of black fruit laced with raspberry and chocolate.

Juicy and concentrated, with fine balance to wild raspberry, blueberry and pervasive wet stone character. Sandalwood and subtle spice highlight the mineral nuances on the finish. Opens up nicely with air. Drink now through 2012. 8,000 cases made. -DS Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Central Otago in New Zealand. 2007 Felton Road Pinot Noir 1500ml

Wine Tasting NotesThe most complex nose to date: a veritable spice cupboard, layered with dark bramble and hints of fruit leaves. The palate is a combination of luscious, brambly fruit; very rich and mouthfilling, with copious fine tannin. A second wave of flavors echoes through the structure of the palate: coffee, chocolate and baking spices. The wine finishes with a tingling juiciness robed in silk. An immersion into hedonism!
