Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling 2016

100% Riesling from Blocks 2 and 4 of The Elms vineyard located in the Bannockburn region of Central Otago.

Fruit was carefully hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The fermentation was stopped by chilling when the optimal balance was achieved between the acidity, alcohol and residual sugar. Careful winemaking with minimal processing highlights the crisp natural acidity and the Riesling characters are delicately poised in the low alcohol of 9.5%.

Winemaker's Comments 

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, and this wine is!
