2013 Felton Road Riesling Bannockburn Central Otago
Reasonably concentrated and moderately sweet Riesling with fine, juicy acidity adding exquisite tension and energy. In addition to the wine’s trademark chalky mineral character it has lime/citrus and rose petal/orange blossom flavours. Deliciously approachable now the wine will develop well with bottle age.
This is so floral, lifted and fresh, with fragrant lime-blossom, lime-juice and green-apple fruit. The palate's lively and expansive with white peach and crunchy crisp apple, and a white-nectarine-sorbet finish. Drink now.
Ripe and smooth, with bright and pure pear, apricot and peach flavors, presenting succulent acidity, medium body and a very spicy finish. (MW, Web-2014)
Felton Road is located in Central Otago, New Zealand, the most southerly wine growing region in the world. The vineyards are surrounded by mountains, many of which are snow capped year round. This climate provides hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns: perfect for fine Pinot Noir and Riesling.
