2021 Felton Road Dry Riesling Central Otago – Riesling from Block 2 of The Elms vineyard was hand-picked then carefully whole bunch pressed, settled for 4 days before racking, then followed by a slow fermentation of 8 weeks with indigenous yeasts to almost complete dryness (5g/L RS). The wine rested on fine lees to build palate weight before bottling in early-September after minimal processing to preserve and highlight the delicate Riesling characters.
The nose explodes with spring blossom supported by ripe pear and melon. Surprisingly softly textured through the mid-palate for a dry Riesling that’s initially all fruit. But the vibrant acidity and mineral characters quickly kick in, adding seriousness and bringing it to a lengthy and satisfying close. Summer in a glass!
