2017 Felton Road "Bannockburn" Pinot Noir Central Otago (Biodynamic)

SKU #1388647 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Elegant, fresh and vibrant, this red starts off wonderfully perfumed, with lavender, white pepper and green tea notes that accentuate the purity of the cherry and raspberry flavors. Polished tannins still provide some grip on the finish, where white truffle and forest floor details linger. Drink now through 2032. *#12 on the Top 100 Wines of 2018* (MW) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Aromatic pinot noir with spice, plum and violet aromas that are joined by liquorice, prune and subtle nutty oak on the palate. Dense, intense wine with strong sweet fruit restrained by subtle tannins. A rich, almost chewy wine, with impressive underlying power. Best served slightly chilled to temper fruit sweetness. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Complex, brambly red-cherry and red-plum aromas with a lightly sappy, forest-floor edge. The palate has a super smooth array of vibrant red cherries and a clearly defined, layered texture. Drink now. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A scented and rather delicate expression sitting lightly in the mouth, but there's no mistaking the density of the mid-palate. There's a slight warmth on the medium-length finish, which offers black cherry and oak-derived Christmas spice. Overall this has lovely harmony and poise.

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Bannockburn Pinot Noir has a lovely, understated bouquet with blackberry and briary aromas and a subtle earthy/forest floor note loitering in the wings. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin and gentle grip in the mouth, but nothing overly powerful. It is a "natural" Pinot Noir leaning towards a broodier style, yet clearly very well made and expressive of its terroir. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2018)
