Felton Rd Pinot Noir 2013 Wine Tasting Review

Sipping this brings back fond memories from 2011 when a flirty wine cat at Felton Road stole our hearts. 

Glossy and richly purple hued, this young Pinot is young, but is very drinkable now. 

I look forward to cracking more bottles of this vintage as the years roll on and seeing how it grows and changes.

Plums and blue fruits give way to French undergrowth and if you hunt for it, you might pick up a hint of the wild thyme that grows in Central Otago.

Cherry fruit is balanced with spice. 

Tannins are there but are only softly drying, and it finishes juicy.
