Wine Of The Week

Felton Road 2014 Block 2 Chardonnay, Central Otago $53

Intense, yet restrained and powerful Chardonnay with layers of toasted nut, wet stone/mineral, wild flowers and a suggestion of brioche. Youthful, almost brooding Chardonnay with plenty of cellaring potential. A stylish and complex wine. (Screwcap)
