Felton Road Cornish Point Pinot Noir 2021
|New Zealand, Otago, Central Otago
"A very energetic pinot with a fine line of tannins running through with a powdery texture. Medium-bodied and very compacted with beautiful berry, strawberry and extremely long. Subtle complexity with salted caramel undertones. Drink or hold." James Suckling 96 points Drink 2024-33
The 2021 Pinot Noir Cornish Point holds itself like a ballerina, poised and tall although this ballerina has more flesh on its bones than you'd see at the royal ballet. It has a curved mid-palate but stays light on its feet, tip-toeing through the mouth. Herbal flavors sit alongside the red rather than black cherry fruit, dark chocolate and coffee grounds. The conclusion is fresh and finely textured.
