Cornish classic

Felton Road Cornish Point Pinot Noir 2017, Central Otago, NZD $80.50

Delicious pinot noir, with a sumptuous texture and floral, plum, dark cherry and Oriental spice flavours. Supple, elegant wine with impressive underlying power – the flavours linger long after the wine has been swallowed (or spat in my case). An accessible wine in a very appealing style. (Screwcap)
