In the 1990s, before New Zealand’s region of Central Otago became a critics’ darling for Kiwi Pinot, there was Felton Road winery, which was already making big strides with Pinot Noir and setting benchmarks for others to follow. The winery’s Block 5 Pinot Noir 2015 remains its signature wine; a delicate quaff that weaves accents of cherry, soya and rose petals. Drink it now or put it away for a few more years. Available from Vintage Fine Wines, S$141.
