Filigree Riesling from New Zealand’s south

The grape material for felton Road’s Riesling Bannockburn comes from 30-year-old vines. These are located in plots (blocks) 2 and 4, which are located within the “Elms Vineyard”. This is characterized by deep soils of angular slate gravel. The careful, manual reading took place in the period from 09. until 20 April. This was followed by whole grape pressing and about 10 days of storage on the fine yeast before the juice was spontaneously fermented with wild yeasts. The approximately 4-week fermentation was stopped by cooling when the optimal balance between acidity, alcohol and a residual sugar of 64g/l was reached. The careful winemaking with minimal intervention highlights the crisp natural acidity and the typical Riesling properties are finely balanced. A very filigree wine from New Zealand with a low alcohol content of 9.5% vol.
