Felton Road Central Otago Dry Riesling (2021)

Estate-grown in schisty soils at Bannockburn, this wine is hand-picked in The Elms Vineyard and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2021 vintage (5*) is a bright, light lemon/green, medium-bodied wine, with vibrant grapefruit and slight apple flavours, showing excellent vigour, delicacy and intensity, and a tangy, basically dry (5 grams/litre of residual sugar), finely poised, very long finish. Likely to be long-lived, it's well worth cellaring to 2024 onwards.
