For the next part of our New Zealand wine series, we focus on the beautiful Central Otago region & the new wine releases from the most critically acclaimed producer from the region, Felton Road.
Producer - Felton Road
Felton Road is one of New Zealand’s most premium wineries, producing World-Class wines.
In New Zealand's Central Otago, the Felton Road winery was bought by Nigel Greening, a self-described Pinot Noir "addict" from England, in 2000 and has been farmed organically & biodynamically since then.
Felton Road's grapes are entirely grown in their own 'Elms Bannockburn Vineyard', which has a northerly exposure to help maximise ripeness. The Elms vineyard is subdivided into 4 plots, namely MacMuir, The Elms, Calvert & Cornish Point.
Felton Road's winemaker Blair Walter's experience in Oregon and Burgundy has stood him in good stead for coaxing the best out of the property's vines. He adopts a 'hands-off approach in the unique three-level winery built into the hillside to produce wines of elegance, complexity, and exceptional depth of fruit.
The result is that Felton Road produces a rare beast - A superb Pinot Noir wine, one of the best examples from outside Burgundy, plus an equally great Chardonnay.
Felton Road is arguably the most famous and awarded winery in Central Otago, and we are delighted to offer you the following wines to you.
