Winemaker Notes

The classic signature of Block 3: Crushed herb and chocolate leads the nose as well as the palate where raspberry, cherry and boysenberry can be detected supporting the mid-palate. It is both rich yet transparent in the mouth, serious and focused, with crisp minerality and great energy, driving the flavors through to a long finish of rich chocolate mocha soaked in raspberry with earthy depths and toasted highlights.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Tense black fruit powers this wine, with black cherry-skin tannins that hold it in place. As a young wine, it feels like a clean and saturated New World pinot, but there’s more to it that simple fruit. Earthiness comes up with air, creating a veil of tannin and added dimension to the flavors. From 15-year-old vines biodynamically grown in loamy soil, this responds well to long aeration, as it will to bottle age.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Cropped at 5-6.5tons/ha and matured for 11 months in 55% new French oak, the 2007 Block 3 Pinot Noir has a Burgundian nose with superb definition and fruit intensity: wild strawberry, raspberry and a sense of earthiness. The palate is medium-bodied, very fine tannins and sense of symmetry. Elegant, perhaps less weighty than the 2006, but supremely well crafted. It should age effortlessly over the next decade.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Felton Road’s Pinots have been among the best in NZ, but the 2007s step things up another notch. The Block 3 combines a briary, slightly herbal element with black cherry aromas, then unfolds on the palate to reveal layers of fruit, coffee and spice. It’s lush yet structured, with a long, textured finish.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Streamlined and tight, with very good focus to black cherry, raspberry, red plum and toasty cedar flavors. Gains weight with air, showing intense minerality, fragrant spice and lean, coiled tannins that define the finish.

Felton Road
Felton Road Wines Ltd, in Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand, has planted some of the world's southernmost vineyards. The expression, "growing on the edge," has real meaning in Central Otago, with the lowest rainfall and lowest temperatures of any agricultural region in New Zealand.

Central Otago is located on the southern end of New Zealand's South Island (latitude 45º south) and shares with Oregon (45º north) similar viticultural challenges: late frosts in Spring, early frost in Autumn, a growing season that may be curtailed overnight. Yet the climates of both are surprisingly similar to Burgundy's Côte d'Or: hot in summer, cold in winter. Central Otago is New Zealand's only wine region with a continental - rather than maritime - climate, which results in greater diurnal and seasonal shifts in temperature.
