Description

Felton Road Bannockburn Chardonnay, Central Otago, New Zealand, 2022

Grape: 100% Chardonnay from the Cornish Point & The Elms vineyards, hand picked, wild yeast fermentation in French oak (10% new wood), unfiltered, unfined, 11 months' ageing on full lees in barrel (total 13 months in cask)

Winemaker's Tasting Note:

A surprisingly overt nose: citrus flowers, elderflower and crushed stone. The palate is, by contrast, dancing rather than shouting: white peach, citrus and florals that weave around a centre spine of acid with hints of brioche. No single part dominates, allowing the flavours to all have their spot in the limelight. The dance settles to a seamless saline and mineral finish, pure to the very end.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Intense chardonnay with salty mineral, oyster shell, citrus, white flower and ginger the most prominent flavours in this taut, mouth-watering wine. Impressive purity, high energy and bright acidity with a lingering finish. It gives a nod in the direction of Chablis."

96/100 points, Bob Campbell MW, THE REAL REVIEW, August 2023

"Pretty, lighter toned aromatics with a floral, citrus lift. Palate has a faint grippy textural edge that gives
a particularly attractive, savoury, almost amaro grip that is very appealing. Subtle layers of flavour
that unfurl with time in the glass. Definitely the most approachable of the three but still offers plenty of
potential to develop further." Drink from 2025-2030.

**** 94/100 points, Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy, December 2023

Drink this Chardonnay with roasted poultry.
