Description

Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling 2018

Opulent, beautifully crafted organic Chardonnay from one of Central Otago’s benchmark producers.

Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling has a ripe melon and nectarine aroma with underlying citrus notes on the nose. The intense aromatics are echoed in the mouth with the addition of spring blossom. The initial wave of residual sugar on the luscious palate is quickly tempered by the bright acidity. It’s a knife-edge balance that’s so critical to give the wine such poise presence. Fine, detailed and zingy.

Counter to many of the other producers in Central Otago, Felton Road crafts their Riesling in a dry and coiled style. If you are looking for a fine dry Riesling that will drink well now as well as mature in the cellar, this is a great option.
