Felton Road Chardonnay Bannockburn 2017 Central Otago - 12 Bottles

Pretty Good

Citrus blossom, grapefruit zest and a hint of hazelnut on a restrained nose. There is a richness to the texture that stands in stark contrast to the linear energy of the flavours. The subtle use of new oak (10%) allows for a greater and more transparent sense of place. A salty, chalky finish with citrus pith and acid dancing with just the faintest hint of gunflint. A graceful and inspiring Chardonnay.

WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

Felton Road Wines Ltd, in Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand, has planted some of the world's southernmost vineyards. The expression, growing on the edge, has real meaning in Central Otago, with the lowest rainfall and lowest temperatures of any agricultural region in New Zealand.

Winemaking

Various clones of Chardonnay (Mendoza, B95, B548, 15 and 6) were carefully hand harvested in late March and early April from Cornish Point and The Elms vineyards. The grapes were whole bunch pressed with the juice immediately flowing to barrel by gravity with no settling.
