One per customer please - thank you

Block 3 is a powerful Pinot Noir that requires age to reveal its smoother side. It is made from grapes grown on a gentle north facing slope in the heart of The Elms Vineyard where deep silt soils are interspersed with calcareous seams. This vintage has had 25% whole bunch fermentation which accentuates the powerful full bodied structure of the wine. It was aged for 13 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. 

Like all of Felton Road's wines, this big, full bodied dry and youthful Pinot Noir is 100% certified organic and biodynamic. 

This wine drinks well now, if decanted, and will age superbly, evolving into a silkier, lithe wine with time. 

About Felton Road

Felton Road winemaker Blair Walter and owner Nigel Greening (who bought the winery in 2000) are a formidable team producing elegant, powerful southern Pinots from their estate vineyards, all now organically and biodynamically certified. 

They specialise in producing limited bottlings from their different vineyard blocks and sites in Bannockburn, Central Otago. Block 3 Pinot Noir is one of these and is one of the most age worthy, with the ability to drink well in its youth but evolve superlatively for up to (potentially beyond) a decade.
