2022 Felton Road Block 1 Riesling
- Felton Road
- Central Otago NZ
The heavier textured soils of Block 1 always produce less citrus and mineral focused aromas compared to our Rieslings grown on the schist gravels of Blocks’ 2 & 4. There is greater intensity of stone fruit (nectarine and apricot abound), and along with freshly grated ginger, dominates both the aroma and flavor. The purity of the fruit is astounding and leads to a seamless integration of the residual sugar and acidity. The wine is a complete and harmonious package, not a single component out of place.
