This New Zealand Pinot Noir comes from the Cornish Point vineyard where the close proximity to water creates a unique mesoclimate. The Felton Road Cornish Point Pinot Noir displays deep florals and spice notes overlying a ripe plum and blueberry base. Signature lavender aromatics lead to chocolate and mocha flavors on the finish. A plush, harmonious and expressive wine.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Cornish Point Pinot Noir is a little closed on the nose showing nuances of black fruits, mossy bark and fertile loam with a floral undercurrent. Medium bodied with a great core of expressive red and black cherry flavors supported by firm grainy tannins and just enough acid, it finishes long with a herbal lift.
