Felton Road Bannockburn Chardonnay Central Otago – 2018
“An inviting and complex nose of almond and apricot kernel with our distinctive white florals. It’s less citrus focussed than normal, expressing more in the stonefruit spectrum due to the warmer 2018 growing season. Winemaking is minimalist: not fined or filtered, allowing for greater expression of place over process. The various vineyard components of this Bannockburn bottling contribute to a
palate that is textural, nutty and very long.” Blair Walter, chief winemaker.
