2019 Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling Central Otago – Beginning with meticulous site selection and vineyard design started in 1991, Felton Road’s story is one of refusal to compromise. A strict 100% estate policy with fully organic and biodynamic viticulture (Demeter certified) ensures that their fruit arrives at the winery as pure as it can be, while their 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.
Apple, tangerine and wet stones overlie subdued exotic floral notes. A burst of sweetness on the palate is quickly tempered by hallmark natural acidity. Perfectly integrated sweetness is harmonised by a mineral expression from the schist soils, the low alcohol (9.5%) and dancing acid structure. An expressive and finely poised Riesling potentiating exciting food matches.
