Felton Road 2022

26 June 2024

The pathway to summer Pinot perfection

To our minds Felton Road is one of the most exciting producers in New Zealand, and an estate that is particularly passionate about Pinot Noir. Their joyous 2022 Bannockburn cuvée makes a great case for being the perfect red to drink over the summer.

Though this is technically their entry-level, it benefits from exactly the same care and attention as their top wines, being an assemblage of the estate’s single vineyards, a blend that is decided very late in the process - from barrel, not at the point of harvest. Juicy, floral and fresh, the 2022 is awash with silky cherry, Victoria plum and damson fruit; expressive and exuding an easy-going vibe, this nonetheless feels sophisticated and stylish. It may not have rocket-science level complexity, but it does deliver pure drinking pleasure. As much as this can be kept for a couple of years, don’t hesitate to start drinking it this summer, ever so slightly chilled; it is enjoyable alfresco either on its own, or is serious enough to comfortably stand up to barbecued meats.
