Professional Wine Reviews for Felton Road Calvert Pinot Noir 2014

Rated 94 by Wine Spectator
Plush and elegant, offering wild strawberry and raspberry flavors, with plenty of precision to the white pepper and fresh earth notes. Fresh and vibrant, showing intensity on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
Rated 91 by Robert Parker
Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Calvert has pronounced, youthful aromas of Bing cherries, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of earth, menthol and sage. Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and lively on the palate, it offers layers of bramble berry and earthy flavors, finishing with good length and chewy texture.

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is one of the planet's most widely grown and enjoyed grape varietals, and thanks to the popularity of the key wines it is associated with – Burgundy and Champagne – it has successfully spread from its native home in France to much of the wine producing world. Pinot Noir means 'black pine' in French, and this refers to the extremely dark, inky color of the fruit, and the fact that it grows in conical bunches, resembling a large pine cone. It has long been revered for its wide range of refreshing, summery flavors, and the fact that it produces red wines of a beautiful garnet color and light body. More recently, sparkling wines made exclusively with Pinot Noir have been extremely popular, and the orchard notes found in the fizzy 'blanc des noirs' wines mark out just how versatile this grape varietal really is. Despite being notoriously difficult to grow, it isn't hard to see why this grape is now found in vineyards all over the world, as it is synonymous with romance and decadence, quality and fantastic flavor

Region: Central Otago

Central Otago, in southern New Zealand, is probably one of the most visually beautiful wine regions on earth, with its gorgeously mountainous landscape, glacial valley sides and stunning views over some of the most dramatic land formations found anywhere. It is widely renowned in the wine world as being the planet's most southerly wine region, situated at a latitude of forty five degrees south of the equator. This extreme position provides a fascinating micro climate in the region, which western settlers discovered almost a hundred and fifty years ago was ideal for viticulture. Today, the wine industry of Central Otago is booming, and the Pinot Noir grapes which thrive most successfully there are renowned for producing big, flavorful and characterful red wines which have gone on to become a flagship for Central Otago's wineries.

Country: New Zealand

As with nearby Australia, New Zealand has over the past century proven itself to be a superb location for producing high quality wines in vast amounts, with much of the cooler regions of both islands being used primarily for vine cultivation. New Zealand wineries are notable for their enthusiasm in regards to experimentation, and for utilizing modern technologies and methods to make the most of the imported grape varietals which flourish in the rich, fertile soils and oceanic climate. In recent years, it has been the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wines which have gained the most attention, as a result of their smoky character and ability to carry the mineral rich nature of the terroir they grow in. Changing consumer interests have brought about a considerable rise in the production of organic and sustainable wines in New Zealand, of which again, the Sauvignon Blanc varietals are leading the way in regards to excellence, flavor and overall character.
