2022 Felton Road Dry 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 grapes from the schist soils of Block 2 were carefully hand harvested in early April. An extended indigenous fermentation has provided complexity, palate weight and length. Aromas and flavours of apple, cucumber and spice, interplay with complex saline and mineral notes. The dry and long finish highlight this austere and commanding Riesling. A serious and fuller bodied rendition from the slightly warmer and lower yielding 2022 season.
