2010 Felton Road Bannockburn Chardonnay Central Otago $40

Clean and light on the nose with a gentle blanket of barrel fermented aromas covering elegant stone fruits with soft mineral edges. Round, juicy and fresh on the palate in a generally lean style which really finds a happy medium between fruit and mineral. There’s firm if airy structure here and gentle toasty biscuit accents on the back end, adding detail to the sweet apple fruit on the finish. The finish is quite strong here, zesty and sapid with a touch of cleansing tannin. This is a baby with a bright future. 92pts
