About This Wine

This is one for chardonnay connoisseurs. Felton Road has something of a cult status thanks to their dedication to sustainability and their ability to continually deliver award winning wines. This chardonnay ticks all the boxes. It’s impeccably put together with floral, hazelnut and white peach aromas leading to delicate lemon zest and mineral flavours. It’s textural, full, fresh and clean. Team up with salmon or swordfish dishes. 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.Bright, tangy chardonnay with citrus, floral and crushed oyster shell characters, subtle oak and an appealing nutty yeast lees influence. It’s a poised and ethereal wine that can be appreciated now, but will become even more interesting with bottle age (up to 6 years)

Central Otago Wines

Central Otago is a unique wine region for New Zealand as it does not grow any of the country's famous Sauvignon Blanc but also unique globally for being the most southerly commercial wine region in the world. The region is famous for its fruity and full-bodied Pinot Noir with about ¾ of all vineyards in the region growing this grape variety. One of our favourite Pinot Noir regions here at World Wine.

Central Otago is the only region in New Zealand with a truly continental climate, with large daily and seasonal temperature extremes. At 300m in elevation, vineyards are protected from the cold ocean winds by high mountains reaching 3700m. The soils are also different to the rest of the country, with heavy deposits of rough-edged mica and other metamorphic schists in silt loams.

Historically, the subregion of Bannockburn has seen the most success. However, the region has seen significant growth in recent years and other sub regions are also flourishing.
