Felton Road Riesling 2014 (Central Otago, New Zealand)

The New Zealand's vineyard exists thanks to the English missionary Samuel Marsden who participated in Aotearoa's evangelization from Bay of Island's. The other father of New Zealand`s (and Asutralian) viticulture was James Busby, the man who produced the first Aotearoa's wine. Although most of the vineyard is planted on the North Island, it is in the South one where varieties adapted to the cold express themselves wonderfully. Let's see it with a cold-friendly Riesling.

Visually without problems. A poweful nose with very varietal, minerals and buttery hints. With the oxygenation it came mentholated and citrus fruits notes for complete this open and clean nose. An off-dry entry in mouth. Fresh and very fruity (white stone fruits) development without forget the menthol side. Very easy to drink (9% alcohol vol.), femenine and fluid. Finish with residual sugars (59 gr/l) and a nice itching sensation.

A very interesting Central Otago's Riesling, more specifically from Bannockburn district. The winery was there built in 1991 to vinify the harvest produced by yhe Stewart Elm's new vineyards (Elm's Vineyard project). Progressively this winery has increased its hectares of vineyards, worked in biodynamic and with a special attention to the house's star-variety : the Pinot Noir. A 'soif' wine this slate's Riesling with a price between 15 to 20 euros to enjoy anytime in the day.
