Founded in 1991, Felton Road is located in the Bannockburn appellation of Central Otago, New Zealand, the world’s most southerly wine growing region. Its inaugural vintage, 1997 was met with immediate critical acclaim and the winery has continued to build its reputation as a premier producer of balanced, elegant wines. Owner Nigel Greening and winemaker Blair Walter employ sustainable practices throughout the estate. The Elms, Cornish Point an Calvert Vineyards are farmed biodynamically. All 79 acres are meticulously farmed - shoot thinning, shoot positioning, leaf plucking, bunch thinning and harvest are all carried out by hand. Cover crops are planted between rows to assist in vine balance and to improve soil health and general biodiversity. Blair’s experience in Oregon and Burgundy form the core of his winemaking philosophy - his hands-off approach incorporates gravity flow and he relies solely on wild yeasts. Only estate fruit is used. No additions or adjustments, including fining or filtration are avoided unless absolutely necessary and the wines age in French oak barrels made by artisanal Burgundian coopers. The Pinot Noirs are fermented with partial whole clusters and vinified in a traditional manner with moderately long macerations on their skins without pump overs. These wines reflect character of place and show that elegance and finesse are wholly compatible with the notions of concentration and complexity.
