Wine Of The Week

Felton Road 2015 Block 1 Riesling, Central Otago $42.50

Concentrated Riesling with chalky mineral, wild flower and citrus, lime and lemon flavours. Very pure and impressively powerful wine with a great texture and very lengthy finish. A true classic that seems drier than its residual sugar of 67 gms/l might suggest. (Screwcap)
