2020 Felton Road Dry Riesling Central Otago – Riesling from Block 2 of The Elms vineyard was handpicked then carefully whole bunch pressed, settled for 7 days before racking, then followed by a long slow fermentation of 8 weeks with indigenous yeasts to almost complete dryness (4g/L RS). The wine rested on fine lees to build palate weight before bottling in late-August after minimal processing to preserve and highlight the delicate Riesling characters.
The nose leads with white florals and crushed stones that overlay aromas of pear, cucumber and lemon zest. The palate is surprisingly expansive as the acidity perfectly integrates with the weight and depth of fruit. A bold and expressive dry Riesling with considerable drive and length. Salivating and contemplative of its schist soils origin.
