2012 Chardonnay, Bannockburn, Felton Road, Central Otago

"“Brilliant lemon gold with a seamlessly integrated nose; floral with subtle hazelnut notes and white peach. Minerality predominates over delicate lemon zest and crisp acid. Very textural on the palate, full not fat. Long, fresh and clean on the finish with not a hint of oak. This wine is unfined and unfiltered, the first time we have achieved this with our Bannockburn Chardonnay.” Estate tasting note

2012 Chardonnay, Bannockburn, Felton Road, Central Otago
Felton Road

Set in the rolling hills of Central Otago, the southernpost point in the world where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are grown, lies the biodynamic haven that is Felton Road. One of the most internationally commended wineries in New Zealand, Felton Road was founded by Stewart Elms and has been stewarded by Englishman Nigel Greening since 2001, when he promptly converted to biodynamic agriculture. The older these vines get, the better and more complex these small production wines become.
