Felton Road is one of New Zealand’s most premium wineries, situated in the prestigious Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago, it excels in Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay. 

 

The estate is farmed Biodynamically (an extension of organic farming) and adopts minimal intervention in the winery, with practices such as using wild yeasts and not fining or filtering the wine. This allows the unique character of the estate’s vineyards to express themselves in the wine. This wine is from Cornish Point vineyard where the close proximity to water creates a unique mesoclimate. This wine was aged for 13 months in French oak barrels from artisan Burgundian coopers. 

 

'Fruit from Cornish Point is some of the first to ripen and is often the first pick of our harvest (though some blocks on the heaviest soils pick significantly later).  Cornish Point displays dense fruit, with surprising tannin for young vines, though the tannin is very fine and sometimes "dusty" rather than liquid. The bouquet is particularly intense from this vineyard: floral and spice notes predominating. Flavours are always in the dark end of the spectrum, with pronounced secondary notes rather than simple primary fruit.

 

‘Brambly forest floor, deep Eastern spice box and dark concentrated cherry aromas. The fruit intensity and plump richness that sings Cornish Point ultimately gives way to a pleasant and soothing rustic charm. An alluring and irresistible mouthfeel with a savoury intensity shining through the finish. Textbook Cornish Point; mouth-coating, silky, sexy and spicy!’ – FeltonRoad.com 

 

Enjoyable and approachable now but will continue to develop up to 15 years plus. Pairs excellently with roast game birds, lamb or mushroom risotto.
