The Block 5 Pinot Noir – a real classic

The plot “Block 5” is located on a gentle, north-facing slope in the heart of the vineyard “The Elms”. The soils of the vineyard planted in 1993 vary up the slope. They range from heavy loess and silt to loamy deposits and angular gravel made of slate rock.

The relatively late harvest of the grape material for the Felton Road Block 5 Pinot Noir was from 07. until 20 April. March was one of the coldest in winery history. The yields were low and the grapes were of perfect health. 20 pounds of the harvest were left as whole grapes, the rest was carefully destemmed and filled by gravity into the fermentation tanks. This was followed by a relatively long maceration phase of around 9 days and fermentation exclusively with indigenous (native) yeasts. After that, the must was pressed and the must was again directed by gravity into the underground barrel cellars. The New Zealand wine spent 17 months in French oak barrels, of which around 30 percent were new. The finished wine was then bottled at the beginning of September without prior fining or filtration.

 

What does Felton Road’s Block 5 Pinot Noir taste like?

Felton Road’s Block 5 Pinot Noir seduces with an expressive, multi-layered scent of red roses and polished leather. This is accompanied by floral notes, black cherry, spices and undergrowth notes. Mineral hints are also clearly visible. On the palate, this New Zealand red wine is very harmonious, full-bodied and dense. The tannins appear polished, the texture velvety soft. The acidity is finely annoying and well integrated. A profound Pinot Noir, with a fruity-peppery finish that lasts a long time.

A pink roasted venison leg with spaetzle and steamed vegetables on mushroom cream sauce. That’s what comes to mind spontaneously with Felton Road’s Block 5 Pinot Noir. This great wine from New Zealand’s deepest south generally enriches game and wild fowl, as well as dishes with lamb and beef. For us it is also a famous meditation wine, drunk solo, in a cozy place.
