Aromas of dusty roses and violets intermingle with hints of cinnamon, clove and Asian spices. The wine displays a wonderful tension between purity and complexity clean notes of bright fruit are framed by balanced acidity and structured tannins.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Offers a pure, succulent core of juicy ripe raspberry notes, with flashes of wild strawberry and cherry. The details of violet, sandalwood and baking spices are charming, coming together in a terrific chorus on the long finish. Drink now through 2028. From New Zealand.M.W. (Apr 9 2014)

Founded in 1991, Felton Road is located in the Bannockburn appellation of Central Otago, New Zealand. Its first vintage, 1997 was met with immediate critical acclaim, and the winery has continued to build its reputation as a producer for balanced, elegant wines with the world’s most southerly wine growing region. The wines Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling are produced from the estate’s 80 acres of vineyards, divided between three sites - Elms Vineyard, Cornish Point Vineyard and Calvert Vineyard. All three vineyards are farmed biodynamically. Winemaker Blair Walter’s experience in Oregon and Burgundy has stood him in good stead, teaching him to coax the best out of the property’s vines. His wines show polish, sophistication, complexity and exceptional depth of fruit.
Technical notes
The grapes were gently crushed into open-top fermentors (20% whole cluster) where they fermented for a moderately long period on their skins. The wine aged for 11 months in French oak barrels (30% new) and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Producer
Felton Road wines is located in Bannockburn, Central Otago in New Zealand, the most southerly wine growing region in the World. Here, vineyards are nestled into small microclimates totally surrounded by high mountains, many of which are snowcapped all year round. These microclimates consistently combine hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns: perfect for the creation of fine Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. The latitude of 45 degrees south is similar to the Willamette Valley in Oregon and some of the finest wine regions of France.

At Felton Road, our philosophy is to let the fruit speak for itself: gentle handling, as little intervention as possible. Our wine is given a helping hand to express itself rather than moulded into an artificially created winery style.
