Felton Road Chardonnay Block 2 2017
Beginning with meticulous site selection and vineyard design started in 1991, Felton Road's story is one of refusal to compromise. A strict 100% estate policy with fully organic and biodynamic viticulture (Demeter certified) ensures that the fruit arrives at the winery as pure as it can be, while our entire estate comes as close to true sustainability as is possible. A commitment to hands-off winemaking: gravity flow, wild yeasts, wild malo, an avoidance of fining and filtration all help preserve the wine's expression of its terroir. The result is Chardonnay and Pinot Noir which accurately express the authenticity and complexity of our unique vineyards. The 'Block' title within the Felton Road range refers to very small, particular 'plots' that generally encompass two or three rows of vines, this attention to soil, aspect and fruit within the vineyard is clear to taste in the purity of the 'Block' wines. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in French Oak (no new oak). 17 months in barrel. "Classic citrus flowers and zest, very linear and single-minded. This is a clue to the palate; a shockwave of citrus and stone, with laser-sharp focus, only allowing the hints of nuts and toast to show through a long, long finish. Texturally the wine is full but kept tight with a fine minerality and immense precision."
