2018 Felton Road "Calvert" Pinot Noir Central Otago

SKU #1463876 95 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Heavy silt soils with a thin layer of loess topsoil have produced a wine of surprising delicacy and grace but with impressive underlying power. Violet, red rose, cherry, plum and savoury characters with just a hint of spicy oak and cocoa powder. An accessible pinot noir with a sinewy core that suggests cellaring potential. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Tasted at bottling, this has very attractive, floral and sappy aromas with ripe red cherries, blueberries, blood oranges and orange zest. The oak is very subtle. The palate is very smooth and deeply creamy with a super succulent and rich array of juicy, lithe tannin , carrying to a long, fleshy and fluid finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Calvert Pinot Noir displays intertwined briary notes of red raspberries and resinous herbs. It's medium-bodied, with supple, slightly dusty tannins, but there's also a wiry backbone of acidity that further brightens the wine and imparts terrific length on the mocha-tinged finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Distinctive, firm and focused, with a note of minerality weaving around the dried berry and cherry flavors at the core. Touches of spice, black tea and dark chocolate linger. Drink now through 2034. (MW) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Organic and biodynamic. Mid cherry red. Ripe almost smoky red-cherry fruit. A slightly firmer grip to the tannins compared with the Bannockburn. Dry finesse and freshness and a really savoury darkly mineral aftertaste. Much too young but already in perfect harmony for a long future. 17.5/20 points. Drink 2023-2030. (JH) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
