A joker with depth from Central Otago

Calvert Vineyard is located on Felton Road and is just 1 km east of The Elms Vineyard and the winery. The calvert soils are characterized by deep, heavy silt and a thin topsoil of loess.

The grapes for the rich Calvert Pinot Noir from Felton Road were gently dehydrated after manual harvesting and the berries were placed directly in open fermentation tanks, with the proportion of whole grapes being around 25 percent. Thanks to the unique felton Roads gravity cellar, this process was possible without mechanical pumping. The maceration, i.e. the soaking of the berries, took about 10 days. This was followed by fermentation with native, wild yeasts. The must remained on the shells for about 22 to 24 days to achieve a perfect leaching of the color and tannins. Then it was pressed and the juice was led by gravity into the underground barrel cellars. The wine then spent 17 months in French oak barrels, with the proportion of new wood being 30 percent. The subsequent bottling of the finished red wine from New Zealand took place at the beginning of September, without any fining or filtration.

 

What does Felton Road’s Calvert Pinot Noir taste like?

The floral and wonderfully fragrant nose of the Calvert Pinot Noir from Felton Road immediately captivates you. The scent of flowers characteristic of the vineyard, mainly accompanied by violets accompanied by dark cherries, plums and a hint of allspice. Hints of minerality are also evident. On the palate, this opulent Pinot Noir presents itself full-bodied, well structured and balanced. The youthful tannins are fine-grained and the acidity is well integrated, dark berry fruit and floral notes continue velvety, accompanied by ethereal tones. A very multifaceted, fine wine from New Zealand’s deepest south, with good development potential and a long, animating finale.

The Calvert Pinot Noir – What a meditation wine. All you need is a glass and a cozy place. But with its mineral-earthy nature, it is fantastic to game and wild fowl.
