2017 Felton Road "Calvert" Pinot Noir Bannockburn Central Otago

SKU #1388646 94 points James Suckling

 Impressive, fresh, dark-cherry and blueberry aromas here with violet flowers, too. The palate has a very sleek, polished and velvety texture with ample,spiced-blueberry and red-cherry flavors, delivering a succulent, juicy and long finish. Really stunning Pinot here.  (8/2019)

 This is definitive Central Otago pinot in the tannic precision of its cold-climate savory spice notes. Blair Walter grows it under biodynamics (Demeter certified) at the Calvert Vineyard, a 25-acre site on Felton Road that the winery began leasing when it was planted in 2001; they purchased just under half of it in 2013. The Bannockburn soils of silty loam mix here with lake-bed clay, quartz sand and fine schist gravel on a sunny, north-facing slope that ripens fruit earlier than the Elms Vineyard, which surrounds the winery. That cool Otago sun comes across in briary berry flavors, herbal notes and apple-skin crunch. It needs a few years to integrate the toasted oak, but the wine’s fragrance lasts, bright and brisk.  (4/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Lush and vibrant, with blackberry and blueberry flavors that are intense and powerful, yet still showing restraint and delicacy, with details of Earl Grey tea, white pepper, loam and cinnamon, lingering effortlessly on the long, expressive finish. (MW)  (7/2019)
