Felton Road rank among the top 3 New Zealand producers, and in all honesty are usually number 1. In fact, they deserve a spot among the top New World producers, and this was proven when they were given the #12 spot in Wine Spectator Magazine's 2018 Top 100 Wines issue- an incredible achievement. The reason for the world-class quality of their wines is a mix of their unique 'terroir', but also because they are one of the leading names in sustainable, low intervention and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking. This Chardonnay has aromas of citrus blossom, crushed stones, white peach and elderflower. The palate is almost completely filled with the characteristic salty minerality. Delicate and fine, not heavy nor complicated with wood or winemaking, it carries a lovely transparency and finesse. There’s no shortage of flavour here, but it is ethereal - it dances on the palate, then finishes with great purity and length. This Chardonnay has lovely richness and texture, making it such an enjoyable wine to drink.
