2021 Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling Central Otago

From: $36.00

2021 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.

Riesling from Block 4 of The Elms vineyard was carefully hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, settled for 3 days before racking, then fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 4 week fermentation was stopped by chilling when the optimal balance was achieved between the acidity, alcohol and residual sugar (64g/L). Careful winemaking with minimal processing highlights the crisp natural acidity and the Riesling characters are delicately poised in the low alcohol of 9.5%.

Near 30-year-old vines offer layers of aromas making it difficult to discern individual components: it’s just un-mistakably Felton Road. Schist, respectful farming and our indigenous yeast all contribute to this highly individual and identifiable style. A burst of sweetness in the middle is reminiscent of a perfectly tree-ripened peach, concluding with a flavour laden crisp finish that never seems to end.
