Winemaker Blair Walter describes the wines of 2019 as ‘astonishing quality’. Delicate citrus flowers, jasmine followed by hints of peach. A substantial but taut palate, honeysuckle, creamy stone fruit and citrus, mouth-filling and generous, but always with nervous tension, then tightening to a stony and saline finish. The 2019 Bannockburn Chardonnay, is sourced from various clones (Mendoza, B95, B548, UCD6) harvested from the Cornish Point and The Elms vineyards between March 30th and April 4th. Bunches were in perfect health. Bright and intense fruit flavours with excellent acidity have resulted in the ‘definitive’ Bannockburn Chardonnay: detailed, precise, long and very satisfying. 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.
