From vines planted in 1992, which is certainly old by Central Otago standards. Taut, high-energy chardonnay with pronounced oyster-shell and mineral characters, lime blossom, ginger and nutty yeast lees flavours. Should develop well with bottle age. Bob Campbell MW

If you're looking for an easygoing, approachable-in-youth Chardonnay, you're in the wrong place. Drink Felton's Bannockburn and Block 6 while you're waiting for this cuvée to reach its peak. The reason is that it has a steely rod of acidity, which provides tension from start to finish. The wild fermentation in barrel imbues a mellow, nutty character to the upright, citrus and red apple fruit. There's excellent depth here and long length. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
