Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"Felton Road farms four properties totalling 34 ha in the Bannockburn subregion 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 Block 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 4 week fermentation was stopped by chilling when the optimal balance was achieved between the acidity, alcohol and residual sugar (59g/L). Careful winemaking with minimal processing highlights the crisp natural acidity and the Riesling characters are delicately poised in the low alcohol of 9.5%

Brooding aromas of wet stones, stonefruits and hints of lanolin, make for a complexing introduction. The mouthfeel opens with a burst of sweetness which is immediately tempered by intense stonefruit flavours and crisp acidity. Like a perfectly tree-ripened Central Otago peach, the completeness and beauty of the flavours dissolves the sweetness and sings of our mountainous Bannockburn location."

5 Stars & 97/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2024 (2023 Vintage)
"An impeccable combination of subtle sweetness and mouth-watering acidity with the best characters of both displayed to their full advantage. Take your pick and enjoy the tangy, vibrant flavours at their youthful best or allow to mellow for a few years in the bottle to expose the wine's toasty complexity"

92/100 James Suckling (2023 Vintage)
"Fresh and fruity with melon and yellow plum aromas and flavours with some sliced cooked apple. Sweet pears. Medium-bodied, off dry and a fruity finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink now. Screw cap."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2021 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 (64 grams/litre in 2021). Full of youthful vigour, the 2021 vintage is an exquisite wine. Light-bodied, intense and vivacious, it has fresh, penetrating, lemony, appley flavours, in a distinctly medium style with a finely balanced, long finish. Best drinking 2023+."
