Buy Now - New Release 2019 Felton Road
Felton Road make Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their stunning vineyards in Central Otago. Working on a very minimalist approach, all wines are gravity fed in the winery to avoid pumping juice uphill, ferments all occur naturally with wild yeasts and oak is very much a mere seasoning here, used sparingly to ensure the fruit really shines.

This release is always highly anticipated with the best wine selling out almost immediately. Make sure to get your order in quick to avoid disappointment.

The 2019 Release

While we prefer to focus on the fact that we safely managed to gather 2020, rather than its potential quality and attributes, we have no reluctance to share with you our enthusiasm for the 2019’s. These are without doubt some of the most thrilling wines we have yet made. Making them, following their evolution through élevage and preparing them for release (racking, bottling, writing tasting notes….), has been a pure delight. It is a vintage, not of an exceptional season, but a result of having every stage of growth perfectly dialed in.This is something we are more frequently approaching these days; a result of bothourincreased efforts and combined knowledge and experience over the last 24 years.
Winemakers Notes, Blair Walter
2019 Bannockburn Chardonnay
Usually $62 - Special Offer $56

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.
Distributors Notes
2019 Bannockburn Pinot Noir
Usually $79 - Special Offer $71

Punches well above its Bannockburn ‘village’ designation, being a blend of Felton Road’s four primely situated vineyards: Cornish Point, Calvert, MacMuir and The Elms. 20% was retained as whole clusters with a moderately long maceration, and aging for just over a year in artisan Burgundian oak, 27% new. A serious wine with considerable definition and poise.
Distributors Notes
2019 Cornish Point Pinot Noir
Usually $99 - Special Offer $91

Is from a vineyard near to the new Cromwell township, where the close proximity to water creates a unique microclimate. As we have come to expect, Cornish Point has a slightly reserved nose as a young wine, yet a palate of serious texture and harmony, which is opulent yet refined. This is a brooding and powerful rendition from an outstanding vintage.
Distributors Notes
2019 Block 3 Pinot Noir $145

From the original plantings by Stewart Elms in Felton Road in 1991, is possibly one of the greatest yet! Located on a gentle north-facing slope where a deep bench of silt is interspersed with calcareous seams, the Block Three shows trademark complexity: red florals interspersed with red fruits, Arabic spices, dried herbs and a whiff of smoke. With both serious density and complexity, the 2019 will reward patience…if you can manage it.
