Felton Road implements a strict 100% estate policy with fully organic and biodynamic viticulture (Demeter certified) ensures that our fruit arrives at the winery as pure as it can be, while our entire estate comes as close to true sustainability as is possible. A commitment to hands-off winemaking: gravity flow, wild yeasts, wild malo, an avoidance of fining and filtration all help preserve the wine’s expression of its terroir. The result is Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir which accurately express the authenticity and complexity of their unique vineyards.

Lead by winemaker Hugh Crichton, Vidal of Hawkes Bay has quite simply astounded us with the premium quality and value of their wine.Hugh brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his craft, working vintages at Chateau Soutard Grande Cru Classe in Saint Emilion France, Chard Farm in Central Otago, Donnafugata in Italy and several vintages at Millton Vineyards in Gisborne where his passion for organic, environmentally conscious winemaking and viticulture began. With this experience comes a philosophy shared by Hugh of producing wines which are truly reflective of the region and vineyards where the grapes are grown.And we couldn’t agree more!!

Quite simply one of the finest examples of Australian Pinot Noir we have come across. The dry grown grapes lay within the Piccadilly Valley region of the Adelaide Hills below the top of Mount Lofty. Resulting in the perfect cool climate environment for Pinot Noir to thrive. Add to this the mastery of Adelaide Hills pioneering head winemaker Stephen George and we are left with what legendary Australian wine writer James Halliday refers to as “the one Grand Cru of the state”.
