The spirited essence of the 2022 vintage takes center stage, guiding the profound bouquet adorned with dark florals, black cherry, and an enticing medley of classic Central Otago spices and dried herbs. Delving into the palate, the flavors unfold with timeless elegance, showcasing abundant diversity and intricate complexity. Remarkably seamless and finely poised even at this early stage, the tannins lurk in the background—sleek and integrated—awaiting patiently for the extended journey ahead. Block 5 emerges as the epitome of chic sophistication, promising an experience that transcends the ordinary.

Embarking on a journey marked by meticulous site selection and visionary vineyard design since 1991, Felton Road's narrative stands firm in its unwavering commitment to excellence. Enforcing a resolute 100% estate policy, coupled with fully certified organic and biodynamic viticulture (BioGro and Demeter), ensures the arrival of our fruit at the winery in its purest form. Our entire estate, driven by an unyielding dedication, achieves a remarkable proximity to true sustainability.

Our approach embraces hands-off winemaking techniques—utilizing gravity flow, harnessing the power of indigenous yeasts, facilitating malolactic fermentation, and deliberately sidestepping fining and filtration processes. These practices collectively serve as guardians, preserving the authentic expression of our terroir. The culmination of our efforts manifests in our Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir varieties, each eloquently articulating the genuine authenticity and intricate complexity inherent to our unique vineyards.

There is an opulence and intensity here yet it remains fresh and vivid with orange peel and ripe strawberry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body with firm and racy tannins that give it tension and focus. Clear and naked in so many ways giving it a clarity that is appreciated. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Better in two or three years. Screw cap.
