2014 Felton Road Block 2 Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Is there a more celebrated winery in Otago? Possibly not. This wine certainly shows why Felton deserves the acclaim - a full flavoured, full of life biodynamic single block Chardonnay that is about as complex as is humanly possible. Top Chardonnay.

Winemaker's Notes

An entrée of zesty citrus, spring blossom, ripe tropicals and nutty undertones on the nose. The bright and linear acidity marries seamlessly to a mineral-rich earthiness on a broad and expansive palate. Uncomplicated by assertive winemaking, the transparency and vineyard expression are allowed centre stage. A powerful Block 2 with typically striking presence and persistence.

2014 Felton Road Block 2 Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
This is a mesmerising vintage for Block 2, promising to rank among the longest lived yet. Monumental complexity of struck flint and bacon fat provides dimension to this energetically vivacious style, drawn out tight by a high-tensile wire of acidity, melding seamlessly with lemon zest, grapefruit, crunchy pear and almost ripe white peach fruit. The finish carries fine-grained, mineral, mouth-embracing texture, outstanding length and honed, seamless line.

A snowtopped peak in the fields of NZ chardonnay, with breathtaking acidity and fresh lemon and white peach fruit complemented by dramatic lees-derived, charcuterie complexity.
