90 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Calvert offers expressive black cherry, black raspberry and anise notes with suggestions of lavender and dried Provence herbs. Medium-bodied, soft, supple and packed with black berry flavors, it finishes with great length." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The Felton Road winery in New Zealand's Central Otago was bought by Nigel Greening, a self-described Pinot Noir "addict" from England, in 2000 and has been farmed organically & biodynamically since then. Their grapes are entirely grown in their own 'Elms Bannockburn Vineyard' which has a northerly exposure to help maximise ripeness.

Felton Road's winemaker Blair Walter's experience in Oregon and Burgundy has stood him in good stead for coaxing the best out of the property's vines. He adopts a 'hands off' approach in the unique three-level winery, which is built into the hillside, with the aim of producing wines of elegance, complexity and exceptional depth of fruit.
