Felton Road Bannockburn Central Otago Chardonnay (2019)

This classy, distinctive wine is grown at Bannockburn and matured in French oak barriques, with restrained use of new oak. Bright, light lemon/green, the 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in The Elms and Cornish Point vineyards, and barrel-aged for 13 months (10 per cent new). Highly refined, it is a youthful, sweet-fruited, harmonious wine, with deep, delicate, peachy, citrusy, slightly biscuity flavours, slightly smoky notes adding complexity, and a well-rounded finish.
