Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Felton Road farms four properties totaling 32 ha in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago. Blocks 2 and 4 are located on gravel fans within the Elms Vineyard with deep soils of angular schist gravels.

Riesling from Blocks 2 and 4 of The Elms vineyard was carefully hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, settled for 4-7 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 (56g/L). Careful winemaking with minimal processing highlights the crisp natural acidity and the Riesling characters are delicately poised in the low alcohol of 9.0%.

Aromas of citrus peel and ginger combine with a distinct minerality. A burst of sweetness on first sip is immediately complimented by ripe stonefruit and mandarin flavours. The residual sugar quickly becomes secondary once the acidity and vibrancy of the fruit complete the harmonious mouthfeel. A tropical finish that lingers and intrigues."


Reviews for the 2019 vintage below…


5 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, November 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling is a delicately luscious riesling that builds a delicious tension between sweetness and mouth-tingling acidity that helps emphasise the wine’s mandarin, wildflower, lime, citrus and chalky-mineral flavours. I’m guilty of buying earlier vintages in quantity to see how they develop but find the wine so irresistible it’s usually gone within a year of purchase. Fortunately, I have friends who also love Felton Road riesling and have more self-control. The wine is capable of ageing for at least a couple of decades with careful cellaring."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Estate-grown in The Elms Vineyard, this gently sweet style has deep flavours woven with fresh acidity. It offers more drink-young appeal than its Dry Riesling stablemate, but invites long-term cellaring. Hand-picked and tank-fermented with indigenous yeasts, it is bottled with a high level of residual sugar (50 grams/litre in 2019). The 2019 vintage is a Mosel-like wine, still very youthful. Bright, light lemon/green, it is intense and vibrant, with strong peach, lemon and apple flavours and a crisp, lasting finish. Best drinking 2022+."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
