The Wine

The 2019 vintage in Central Otago was exceptional, with winemaker Blair Walter expressing immense excitement for the wines, declaring, “These are undoubtedly some of the most exciting wines we have produced.” The fruit used in their wines comes from fully organic and biodynamic viticulture, guaranteeing that only the best quality fruit is delivered to the winery.

James Suckling Top 100 Wines of New Zealand 2021

98 Points James Suckling 'Very fragrant nose here with deeply woven complexity. Earthy nuances, bracken, leaves and spiced red cherries abound with roses and violets, as well as blueberries. The palate has long tannins that extrude deep along a central spine. Lots of blueberry and red-cherry flavors. The contained, fleshy feel of the palate is really something and this always powerful wine is in such, supple and fluid form.'

97 Points Vinous 'An alluring style that draws you in with its silken texture. It is pure, inviting and might be called sumptuous if not for an arrow-like line of acidity and whole-bunch-derived sappiness bringing up the rear, taking that ethereal texture and urging this wine forward. The finish is interminable, with satisfying savory, spicy characters persisting alongside woody herbs and broody black fruit. At 14.5% alcohol, there is the merest hint of heat, which is the only minor gripe in this near-perfect Central Pinot.'

About the Wine Maker 

"If Central Otago was the Côte de Nuits, then Bannockburn would likely be Vosne-Romanee and I'm going to hang it right out and say that Felton Road would be the top gun, the DRC."  James Suckling
