Domain Road Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018
Felton Road's neighbour
This sells out in a flash. No surprise, as Domain Road's Defiance Vineyard is on Felton Road just next to the vineyards of arguably New Zealand's most famous name whose pinot noir sells for much higher prices. A rich and generous Central Otago style featuring aromas of deep ripe dark cherry and plum fruits, dark chocolate and baking spices. The supple palate delivers on every level, with dark plum and five spice, juicy cherry and some forest floor notes. Detailed and finely balanced with bright mineral acidity and fine tannins. Delicious pinot which will improve even further over the next few years.
