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 macroclimates totally surrounded by high mountains, many of which are snowcapped all year round. Though the location is on the edge of sustainable viticulture these macroclimates consistently combine hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns. The latitude of 45 degrees south is similar to the Willamette Valley in Oregon and some of the finest wine regions of France. "Both of Felton Road's Pinot Noirs are breakthrough efforts in New Zealand, and compete with the finest wines being made in California, Oregon and Burgundy's Cote D'Or.

Relatively early picking. Thirteen years of biodynamic farming on this site, and winemaker Blair Walter says the vines are really in the zone. Same old thing in winery, whole bunch press and straight to barrel. Natural ferment usually takes up to a week or more to start, then bubbles along for anywhere between weeks and months. A haze in 2014 meant that the wine needed a filter, which it normally doesn’t get. Suitably fresh scented – grapefruit, citrus pith, fine marzipan aromas. High toned and pretty. Tightly wound, licked with nougat oak flavours but feels brisk and citrus driven with a flicker of saline mineral feel throughout. Finishes tight, lightly chalky, tangy. Beautiful, sleek, straight forward chardonnay. Alcohol : 14%; Price : $45; Closure : Screwcap; Rated : 93 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
