Felton Road Bannockburn Central Otago Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Forging ahead in quality, this wine is grown at three sites at Bannockburn and matured in French oak barriques (with limited new oak; 12 per cent in 2010). The 2009 is powerful (14.5 per cent alcohol) yet elegant, with fresh, ripe grapefruit, melon and peach flavours, subtle oak, gentle acidity and a very harmonious, well-rounded finish. The 2010 is richly scented, with very citrusy aromas and flavours. An intense, elegant, cool-climate style, slightly appley and spicy, with finely integrated oak, it is tight, harmonious, slightly minerally and long. Drink now or cellar.
