2022 Felton Road Block 1 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 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 our unique vineyards.
The heavier textured soils of Block 1 always produce less citrus and mineral focused aromas compared to our Rieslings grown on the schist gravels of Blocks’ 2 & 4. There is greater intensity of stone fruit (nectarine and apricot abound), and along with freshly grated ginger, dominates both the aroma and flavor. The purity of the fruit is astounding and leads to a seamless integration of the residual sugar and acidity. The wine is a complete and harmonious package, not a single component out of place.
