2016 Riesling Bannockburn, Felton Road winery, Biodynamic 2016
FELTON ROAD WINERY, Central Otago
Based in Bannockburn, Central Otago, the most southerly wine-growing region in the world, Felton Road winery can be found in several small microclimates surrounded by perpetually snowcapped mountains. These microclimates consistently combine hot days, cool nights and long dry autumns: perfect for the creation of fine Pinot Noir and Riesling. Felton Road work biodynamically
Aromas of lychee, stonefruit and florals. The palate is peachy, dense and completely refreshing with a sherbet finish. The residual sugar is so completely integrated with the intense fruit flavour that it becomes somewhat unnoticeable. It has such a seamless simplicity of rightness about it that it is hard to pull out a single feature to comment on. It’s just about being right.
