The View from Felton Road across the Pinot Noir vines of Block 3, center background

I was glad to have had the chance to spend some time with Felton Road’s winemaker, Blair Walter, this past month. For someone interested in experiencing the unique cool climate wines of New Zealand’s Central Otago region, these are must try wines.

Every effort is being made at Felton Road to allow the wines to express their terroir, while capturing the intense fruit flavors the vines are capable of providing. While not inexpensive by any stretch, the entire Felton Road line-up stood out, offering a sense of vibrancy and transparency, yet with rich, ripe fruit flavors. An attractive balance indeed.
