Felton Road Dry Riesling 2020

Description

Beginning with meticulous site selection and vineyard design started in 1991, Felton Road's story is one of refusal to compromise. A strict 100% estate policy with fully organic and biodynamic viticulture (Demeter certified) ensures that our fruit arrives at the winery as pure as it can be, while our entire estate comes as close to true sustainability as is possible. A commitment to hands-off winemaking: gravity flow, wild yeasts, wild malo, an avoidance of fining and filtration all help preserve the wine's expression of its terroir. The result is Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir which accurately express the authenticity and complexity of our unique vineyards. Riesling from Blocks 2 and 4 of The Elms vineyard was carefully hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, settled for 3-5 days before racking, then fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 3-week 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 9.0%. Ripe melon and nectarine 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 and presence. Fine, detailed and zingy. (Winemaker's note, July 2018)
