Felton Road wines is located in Bannockburn, Central Otago in New Zealand, the most southerly wine growing region in the World. Here, vineyards are nestled into small macroclimates totally surrounded by high mountains, many of which are snowcapped all year round. Though the location is on the edge of sustainable viticulture these macroclimates consistently combine hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns: perfect for the creation of fine Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. The latitude of 45 degrees south is similar to the Willamette Valley in Oregon and some of the finest wine regions of France.
The entire estate is now run biodynamically. The heart of the range consists of a series of five world-class Pinot Noirs: Cornish Point, Block 3, Block 5, Calvert and Bannockburn Pinot Noir. In addition, three superb Rieslings and 2 stunning Chardonnays make up this exciting range.
The Winemaker is Blair Walter whose experience in Oregon and Burgundy have helped put him in the forefront of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producers in New Zealand.
