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. The Wine Advocate; Robert Parker

Punches well above its Bannockburn ‘village’ designation, being a blend of Felton Road’s four primely situated vineyards: Cornish Point, Calvert, MacMuir and The Elms. 20% was retained as whole clusters with a moderately long maceration, and aging for just over a year in artisan Burgundian oak, 27% new. A serious wine with considerable definition and poise.
