Felton Road

Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling 2010 Central Otago
N: A lush and full bouquet of citrus and tree fruits with Asian pear, apricot stone and sweet white flowers; then a citrus peel and cold stone under-currant of terroir and a vineyard link.
4.5 Stars

P: Off-dry with immediate and noticeable residual sugar balanced by high acidity; Lemonade, citrus peel, crisp apple and a seamless Riesling flow across the palate. Med++ length, balanced and well made.
A delightful wine - serve well chilled as an aperitif (not something I would readily recommend) or not so chilled with light, fresh and obviously sweet starters. (9% abv)
4.5 Stars
