2013 Chardonnay Bannockburn

eRobertParker.com, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 2014

The 2013 Chardonnay has pretty white blossom notes – orange and peach blossoms – over a core of grapefruit, white peaches and baking bread with a hint of marzipan. Medium bodied and still very tight in the mouth, it has great tension lifting the citrus and stone fruit flavors, finishing long and creamy. 91 points.

Gourmet Traveller, Oct/Nov 2014

Each of Felton Road’s three vineyards provided grapes for this wine. The grapes were whole bunched pressed, fermented in French oak barrels using indigenous yeast and aged for 12 months in oak. Wonderfully pure, yet subtly flavoursome and powerful chardonnay with chalky mineral, nectarine, brioche and hazelnut characters making up the more dominant flavours. It has the purity and power of Burgundy with strong Kiwi and Central Otago accents. 96 Points *****
