Felton Road Chardonnay Central Otago Block 2 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is fairly taut and nervous this young, with hints of citrus peel and a touch of pineapple in the background. The palate is somehow both rich and textural but almost entirely mineral. It is almost impossible at present to find the fruit under the layers and layers of flint and stone. But while the wine is infused with tension, it is anything but austere. The use of minimal new oak keeps woodwork well out of the picture. The finish is very long, very pure and again, chiselled from stone.Winemaker notes.

Light, leesy nose that offers gentle wood spice along with bright notes of crystalline citrus fruit. Right off the bat this shows fine cut on the palate and a wonderfully pure expression of lime fruit accented with a touch of peachy sweetness. This remains very fresh with a lovely, dry fruit character and aromatic notes of acacia on the palate. There’s some dusty limestone on the finish, which shows fine length and firm, clear, notes of lacy fruit recalling crisp white peach, slightly creamy lime pith and a touch of pineapple on the finale. Today I prefer this to the Bannockburn, but it does lack some of that wine’s focus and tension. 93pts

Good value. Well balanced with acidity and bitter taste, also got reasonable matured.
