Felton Road Dry Riesling (2020)

Estate-grown in schisty soils at Bannockburn, in Central Otago, this wine is hand-picked in The Elms Vineyard and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2020 vintage (5*) is an immaculate, full-bodied wine, bright, light lemon/green, with deep, peachy, citrusy, limey flavours, and a finely poised, basically dry (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. Already very harmonious, it should break into full stride 2025+.
