Felton Road

Felton Road 'Elms' Chardonnay 2011 Central Otago 14%
N: Elegant, striking and sophisticated: A definitive bouquet of linear Central Otago mineral laden stone fruits - peach and 
pear with a floral interruption; The Felton Road and Central Otago signature sing out yet there is a Chablisesque edge that I like a lotl. Noticeable yet balanced oak.

P: Immeduiately flavourful with a mix of varietal and complex Chardonnay statements: pear and peach mixed with lightly spiced vanillin oak  - creamy and slightly sweet; youthful medium+ acidity, mineral nuances add to an already gentle complexity.
Quite a long finish, balanced and beautifully made.
5 Stars
