Felton Road Dry Riesling

I’ve always felt that Central Otago’s inherent acidity never sits quite as harmoniously in Felton’s Dry Riesling as it does in its sweeter renditions, yet the vintage from the gods has blessed it with an internal balance like it has not seen before. This is a precisely crafted riesling that presents fruit intensity within an intricately chiselled frame. Outstanding, pristine aromas of lime zest and lemon blossom introduce a palate that rides of rails on chalky mineral structure. Tense lime juice acidity and crunchy red apple fruit of exacting definition and seamless line carry through a very long finish. Then just when you fear its searing linearity is too much, a note of baked apple kicks in in the middle, giving a sense of width to its streamlined shell. .
