Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Felton Road, Cornish Point, Pinot Noir, Central Otago, 2011

"Ripe plums, dark florals and complex spice abound on the nose. Flavours of rich fruit compote laced with spices coat the palate. The tight core of fruit is encased by chalky and beautifully fine tannins. Deep and brooding and a typically muscular and hedonistic Cornish Point." Felton Road

Felton Road

Felton Road is a boutique winery situated in Bannockburn, Central Otago which is the most southerly wine growing region in the world. Here small pockets of vineyard shadowed by snow-capped mountains have a unique microclimate that enables the production of fine wine even here on the outer limits of sustainable wine production. The hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns play a vital role in this. The winemaking philosophy here is a ‘softly, softly’ approach – at no point in the viticulture or winemaking processes is the human hand allowed to make its mark too heavily. Felton Road work in tandem with nature using organic treatments, manure and plant cover crops to ensure natural bio-diversity in the vineyards. Low yields are achieved through hand pruning and all picking takes place by hand. In the cellars Burgundian barrels are used for the oak-aged wines and bottling takes place without fining or filtration. The result is pure, light touch, vibrant wine.
