Felton Road, Bannockburn Pinot Noir, 2018

Felton Road make the best Pinots in New Zealand: the driven perfectionism of English owner Nigel Greening - who has embraced organics and bio-dynamics (Demeter certified) - combined with the light touch wine-making of Blair Walter (now using more whole bunch fermentation) ensure that these intensely fruited, fleshy wines are brilliant every vintage; and age superbly. The Bannockburn is a benchmark wine among all New World Pinots: heated raspberries and strawberries with a hint of coffee; supple and perfumed, already delicious but also ageworthy. Now-2027

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
