2015 Block 6 Chardonnay
|Origin||New Zealand, South Island|
Initiallly shows more oak and less fruit on the nose than the Block 2. Lightly smoky to add complexity. On the palate, powerful, intense, and driving to a very long finish. A little bit of heat here but the weight of the fruit can take it and the finish is fresh and long. Smart Chardonnay that needs a little more time to mesh.

Felton Road and Rippon are undoubtedly the two leading vineyards in Central Otago, both making Pinots that are finely textured with fresh fruit flavours, rather than the 'fruit bombs' that so many others produce. Felton Road has been totally Organic and Biodynamic across their three Bannockburn vineyards since 2005. They will be certified by Demeter in 2009. This viticultural regime is reportedly making a significant difference to the health and strength of their vines over many of their neighbouring vineyards.
