Tasting Notes


ABV:
14 %

Notes

Highly perfumed, more voluptuous and spicy, the Cornish Point has a higher, more precise acidity, with nicely sculpted tannins. The shallower soils means that the limestone influence is more marked in this wine. Aged for 13 months in 30% new French oak.

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.
